Check the area of a lot in a Residential Growth or Mixed Use Zone

As the owner of a lot in a Residential Growth or Mixed Use Zone, the size of your lot, and the measurements of your structure help determine whether you need planning permission for your project.

To construct a carport or garage, you need a Planning Permit if the area of the lot is less than 300sqm.

To construct a shed or gazebo, you need a Planning Permit if:

  • the area of the lot is less than 300sqm
  • the gross floor area of the shed or gazebo exceeds 10sqm, and
  • the height of the shed or gazebo is more than 3m.

Note that height is measured from natural ground level to the top of the structure.

Do the size of my lot and measurements of my structure require that I apply for a Planning Permit?
