A planning permit is required for subdivision by all zones, by some overlays and by Clause 52.29 of the Planning Scheme to subdivide land adjacent to a Road Zone, Category 1. Some exemptions apply for minor 'realignments' of boundaries but this should be confirmed by talking to a planner.
Please note: whilst it is not a requirement, it is advisable to engage a qualified and experienced planning consultant or land surveyor to assist you with preparing an application for subdivision due to the potential complexities of the Planning Scheme and the subdivision process. You will be required to engage a qualified and registered land surveyor to have final survey plans prepared and registered before new titles can be issued for any new lots.

A building permit is not required for a subdivision.
Subdivision of land does not require a wastewater permit, however a Land Capability Assessment may be required to support your planning permit application for subdivision if the land is not sewered. Please discuss this further with your planning officer or contact Council's Environmental Health team.
