Construction Management Plans

The requirement for preparation of a Construction Management Plan (CMP) is imposed through a condition on a planning permit. This condition is usually applied to large or difficult to build developments. A CMP helps builders and developers reduce disruption to neighbouring residents and the environment during the demolition, excavation and construction of a building site. 

Whitehorse City Council have introduced new permits and fees in relation to Construction Management Plans commencing soon for Equipment and Plant Equipment and Out of Hour Permits.

Before submitting a CMP for assessment, contact the Construction Management Liaison Officer on 9262 6303 to discuss the requirements prior to submitting your application. This will help streamline the application process and outline ongoing requirements. 

All CMP applications must upload a completed CMP Guidelines and Sign-off Document. ( PDF 2.26MB) and can be paid and lodged online.
