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.

You may need a Planning Permit, a Building Permit or both to build a pergola on your property.


Use the Construct a pergola guide to find out which permits you need for your project.

  • Begin at Step 1 and answer the questions one at a time.  
  • You may be asked to measure the area or width of the pergola, or refer to the site plan to see the position of the pergola relative to the building.
  • When prompted, exit the guide and apply for the permits relevant to your project.
