Before the actual construction of your pergola, patio or carport takes place, you must have council approval first. Not every structure requires approval but checking certainly will not hurt.
There is nothing worse than forking out the money and building a structure, and then being fined or having to remove it because it indeed needed approval.
Depending on where exactly you live, the council requirements may differ. And although friends and family may say that construction is fine without checking, they will not be the ones paying the fines.
Here at Correct Constructions, we are experienced and qualified in assisting with obtaining council approval as well as designing and constructing ideal patios, pergolas or carports.
Having a helping hand with getting council approval is invaluable and makes the whole process easier and smoother.
Depending on the property and structure, there are varying permits that exist. You may require a planning permit, which mainly focuses on the boundary and design regulations. A building permit, however, emphasises safety regulations and construction details.
Again, this is not always necessary, but a skilled building company will be able to assist in checking and complying.
Carports, in particular, are typically roofed, and therefore will most likely require a permit. But even then, the various areas of NSW, and even in Sydney, can have different permit requirements based on the type of roof a carport or other structure will have.
Sometimes, your particular design requires requesting exemptions or special approval. This is possible and made more comfortable with us.
The cost of permits also depends on the exact type of approval you may need and the specific location you reside in. But getting proper permission is far better than risking fines and penalties.
