Check if the retaining wall will be used for a non-residential purpose
As a property owner in a General Residential, Neighbourhood Residential, Mixed Use or Residential Growth Zone, consider whether the retaining wall will be used for a non-residential function. For example, will it be used as part of a medical centre?
If the retaining wall is for residential purposes, you won't need to apply for a Planning Permit.
If the wall is for non-residential purposes, email Statutory Planning to discuss any specific planning requirements and exemptions for your circumstances.
Did Statutory Planning advise that you need a Planning Permit to use a retaining wall for a non-residential purpose ?
- If yes, apply for a Planning Permit.
- If no, you do not need to apply for a Planning Permit. See if you need a Building Permit.
