After completing development and landscaping works, you will need to apply to get your bond back after a post-construction inspection.
How to arrange an inspection
- Search for your Planning Permit on the Planning Applications Portal
- Select “Landscaping Inspection” from the list of available actions for Permit applicant.
You will need to have a photo of the completed development (one taken from the street) ready to attach when submitting your request.
Once a request is received, it will be allocated to a Planning Officer, who will contact you to schedule an inspection.
Get your bond back after final inspection
You will get your bond refunded after the completion of a satisfactory inspection. Our team will be in touch to confirm that all required banking details are up-to-date before a bond refund is issued.
Get your bond back after a permit expires
If your development has not commenced and your permit has expired, you can request a refund of your bond. We will only give you a refund in a situation where we cannot extend a permit. This is generally six months after the expiry date.
