Dwellings and Additions


Before constructing a dwelling or making an addition or extension to your existing home, you will likely need to submit a building application.

Building Applications are necessary for these types of building activities:

  • new buildings;
  • alterations or additions to existing buildings;
  • swimming pools;
  • sheds (including garden sheds);
  • roofed or unroofed patio additions;
  • pergolas attached to dwellings;
  • the removal or demolition of buildings;
  • material change of use; and
  • sub-division of land (reconfiguration of parcel/lot)
