Over Easter (Friday 19 to Monday 22 April) and on Anzac Day (Thursday 25 April), some of our services and centres may be closed or have different hours. Please see details of all affected services.

Check the height of a freestanding aerial or antenna

Measurements for a freestanding aerial

Measure the distance from the top of the aerial or antenna to natural ground level.

Is the distance you measured more than 8m?

  • If yes, apply for a Building Permit.
  • If no, you don't need to apply for a Building Permit. As long as there are no Planning Permit restrictions, you can install the aerial or antenna. You can now exit this guide.
