You may need a Planning Permit, Building Permit or both to build a retaining wall.
How to use this guide
To help you work out which permits you need, begin at Step 1 and answer the questions one at a time. You may be asked to look at property zoning, measure the wall, and assess the wall's position in relation to property boundaries.
Before you begin
Check for easements on your property. When an easement is obstructed, it can prevent important maintenance work and block the flow of stormwater. If your plans impact an easement, either modify the plans or enquire whether your proposed development qualifies for approval.
