Do I need a permit for a garden shed is one of the most commonly asked questions when customers are wanting to install it for their garden. Most small garden sheds are exempt or complying developments by Councils and do not require you to apply for a Building Permit or Development Application. Councils throughout Australia are relaxing the requirements for shed building permits. The objective is to reduce red tape and to enable Councils to concentrate on more important building approval and DA application tasks. This is good news for anyone who wants to build a back-yard garden shed. There is no simple answer to this as there are a few factors to consider when purchasing and assembling your garden shed. The shed permit and approval process is being streamlined in all States of Australia. As of 2011 the streamlining process is still in flux and its best to contact your local council to get definitive answers.
Here are a few basic guidelines to follow:
As you would be aware majority of people position their garden shed against a Boundary/Fence, this is up to the property owner but please be aware the Council may ask you to move your shed as it should be the height away from the boundary (this would only occur if someone brought this to the Councils attention). If your Garden Shed is sitting on a timber floor it can easily be moved to another position if required so may be a safer option. However, if laying a custom-made concrete pad this can become difficult so please be aware of these rules prior to doing so.
If you are unsure whether your garden shed requires consent and unsure as for the requirements, it is best to consult your local council and discuss it. As for Nice Backyard, we supply and install Garden Sheds for our customers. We hope that the basic information above helped you how to know and where to check if your garden shed needs a council permit ?
