Permanent living in any temporary home is not supported in the local laws (i.e. not the intent of it). Permanent living in temporary accommodation is only permitted in a caravan park.
Temporary home permits are granted for two main reasons and generally have a time-limit of 12 months with the possibility of a 6-month extension (at no extra charge) to be granted on request.
The maximum term is 18 months with no renewal.
A permit will be given if the person wishes to live temporarily e.g. in a caravan, tent, etc. on their block of land while building (and building approval for the permanent house must be in Council’s records in order for the permit to be issued) or in exceptional circumstances, e.g. looking after a terminally ill relative.
To submit your application, complete the Temporary Home Permits Application Form, attach the additional information and return with payment to email@example.com, post to the address on the form or hand deliver to:
