Check whether the dish is set back from property boundaries
The wider the satellite dish, the more it needs to be set back from the property’s boundaries. Dishes that are 1.2m to 2.4m wide (and can’t be seen from the street or a neighbouring building) don’t need a Planning Permit, as long as they meet the following setback requirement:
The dish is set back from the side or rear boundary 1 metre, plus 0.3 metres for every metre of height over 3.6 metres up to 6.9 metres, plus 1 metre for every metre of height over 6.9 metres. (Source: Boroondara Planning Scheme) Contact Statutory Planning to help you find out whether the position of your dish meets the setback requirement.
Is your satellite dish adequately set back from the property’s boundaries?
- If yes, you don't need a Planning Permit. See if you need a Building Permit.
- If no, apply for a Planning Permit.
