Do I need a Building Permit?

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Do I need a building permit? This question is asked of us upon almost every building enquiry we receive. Whilst the answer is clear, the information the consumers receive can be very misleading or over complicated. A simplified approach and answer is almost always, yes building structures (including verandahs & pergolas) require a building permit. Some sites such as a town house or small site may also need town planning approval, report and consent application or building modifications. Problems arising later on through non-compliance, etc can be a financial burden that should be avoided.

What is a Building Permit?

A building permit is a document issued by a registered building surveyor to signify that the plans and documentation for a proposed building work meets the requirements of the Building Act 1993 and the Building Regulations 2006. The building permit provides approval for work to commence and is required for most new buildings, major renovations, extensions, alterations and demolitions.

Generally, verandahs and deckings for example, fall under the category of a Class 10 building project and if attached or adjacent to a dwelling are considered an extension to the dwelling.

Who issues Building Permits?

This is done by Building surveyors who evaluate and assess plans, conduct inspections and issue building permits. All building permits are lodged with your local council.  Building surveyors are responsible for ensuring buildings are safe, energy efficient, accessible and meet all legal requirements.

When is a Building Permit required? email.
