Important information for residents and potential residents when thinking about building, renovating, installating pools and waste disposal follows. 

Building Applications for Building Works

As Council's Building Survey, Mr Atyeo has the authority to approve all building work intended to be performed within the Shire. A person wishing to conduct building work within the Shire must make a written application to Council in the form approved by the Shire. 

These forms can be obtained by contacting the office staff on (08) 9963 3000 during normal office hours or you can download this form from this site. There are also regulated fees that must be paid before a license is issued, and these fees can be advised to you by Mr Atyeo. Council also has an information document that can be downloaded from this site which advises applicants on some specific requirements in regard to Town Planning, Building License applications, and Septic Tank minimum standards.

Generally a licence is to be obtained for any structure being placed on your property within the Shire, this includes such works as swimming pools, sheds, patios and in some circumstances retaining walls. The Building Surveyor has the authority to approve or refuse building applications unless the application also requires Planning Approval, in which case it will be referred to Council for determination. 


Relocation of used Buildings

All applications to relocate used dwelling buildings into the Shire of Mount Magnet must be accompanied by;

  • Plans and specifications in duplicate;
  • Photographs clearly showing four separate elevations of the used dwelling building;
  • And a certificate, signed by a practicing structural engineer, certifying that the design and structure of the used dwelling building is suitable for transportation and re-erection.


Demolition of Buildings

All building demolition requires the approval of Council and application is to be made in accordance with State Building Regulations.
