Check if the building height or storey count prohibits your project
In a General Residential, Residential Growth or Neighbourhood Residential Zone there are limits on the maximum height or number of storeys you may construct.
Look at the following table to see the mandatory height and storey limits.
|Zone||Schedule number||Maximum height||Maximum number of storeys|
|Residential Growth Zone||RGZ1||13.5m||No maximum|
|General Residential Zone||GRZ1||9m||3 storeys|
|Neighbourhood Residential Zone||NZR3||9m on a non-sloping site.
10m on a sloping site*
*A slope is where the angle of the natural ground level, measured at any cross section of the site of the building wider than 8 metres, is greater than 2.5 degrees.
Does your design exceed the maximum building height or storey count for your zone?
- If yes, you might not be permitted to perform the extension. Exit the guide and contact Statutory Planning for advice. We will email you the exemptions.
- If no, go to the next step.
