Variation to Excavation permit s144

Heritage Management System is coming! Soon you will able to lodge, pay and track these applications online. However there will be a two week transition period when we transfer over to the new system and we won't be able to receive applications during that time. Check the HMS page for more information and updates as the go live date approaches.

Proposals to modify an existing approved Excavation Permit require a variation request to be submitted.

Reasons for variations may include, but are not limited to:

  • change in archaeological personnel
  • change in the scope of the works
  • change of applicant.

A Variation to an Excavation Permit can only be submitted by the original applicant of the Excavation Permit Application.
