When you undertake building or development, there are many factors you should take into consideration.
Discover how to minimise your building project or planning permit application's impact on our environment.
Before undertaking building works, make sure you are protecting neighbouring properties, Council assets, and have compliant fencing or hoarding in place.
We inspect building sites to check compliance with building standards and regulations. We also check essential safety measures in commercial, public industrial and some residential buildings.
Find out how your property should be protected if building works are being undertaken next door, and how to make a report building rubbish and potential permit breaches.
If you can’t track down the owner of your neighbouring property, we can provide property owner contact details for the replacement or repair of fences.
