As with all approval processes for your patio or carport we engage a Private certifier to obtain a building approval.
Local Councils are responsible for archiving all documentation and relaxation permits & approvals.
The process starts with D&C Patios preparing a site measure and draft site plans. Once the plans have been received from our draftsman, all the relevant documents including the engineering are forwarded to our private certifier who will then assess the application.
The certifier will then conduct all the relevant searches relating to your property i.e., location of sewerage, storm water and easements. This process can take up to 2/3 weeks to complete. If a relaxation is required for the front or side boundaries, or the length of the structure is greater than 9m, we will inform you at your initial consultation/quote as additional fees will be required for this through council. Extra time will also be required for the relaxation approval process as an inspector from your local council will need to inspect the site and carry out additional paperwork prior to approvals being given.
After completion of your patio or carport, a final inspection will be carried out by the certifier. Once completed, all approval documents and Form 21’s will be sent to the homeowner.
As above, the same processes will take place, however you will need body corporate approval to proceed.
The application fees for this may change as you may have standard fees, or you may need GIA or a DA approval, this can be checked with your local body corporate, council or a certifier.
If a DA or GIA is needed this can be costly.
