Welcome to the Shire of Nannup


The Building Act 2011 came in to effect on 2 April 2012. This Act brings major changes to the building approval process in Western Australia. It repeals the Builders Registration Act and parts of the Local Government Act. The Act enables both Local Authorities and private registered building surveyors to certify building applications with Local Authorities still issuing permits.

The Shire of Nannup continues to provide a service for people requiring a building surveyor to assess, approve and certify plans. In addition we provide a range of other building related information and services. Customers may also choose to use the services of a private building surveyor and submit a certified application to the Shire as the Permit Authority. Applications will need to have all approvals in place prior to lodgement for a permit to build.

The Building Commission has all forms and information available on their website www.buildingcommission.wa.gov.au or the application forms can be downloaded using the links below.

Applications for the installation of on-site wastewater systems are processed through the Shire's Building Department in consultation with our Environmental Health Officer, and the application form can also be found below.

Please note: If your property is in a declared bushfire prone area and your building permit application is required to be accompanied by a Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) report, the Shire of Nannup will only accept a report issued by a BPAD accredited assessor.
