Development Services

The Shire of Chapman Valley through its planning, building and health processes, seeks to pursue a balanced approach to development that protects a localities amenity, preserves heritage and provides clarity to developers.

By recognising and promoting a diverse range of opportunities for its residents the Shire aims to encourage sustainable development and sound agricultural practices whilst preserving the natural and unique landscape and environmental features of this beautiful region.


Our Town Planning scheme requires that approvals are gained for most land developments. It is important to know when approvals are required and the processes involved in acquiring these.

Remember that development refers to a range of building activity; from clearing and leveling of land, to construction.

Development applications (DA's) can be approved more readily if you start with the right application forms and information.
