In a perfect world all it would take to construct a new building project would be the will to build and the proper tools, but as it stands, there are plenty of hoops to jump through before you can be given permission to get started.
While the rules and regulations may change based on location, in nearly every case, some kind of development approval is necessary before you can begin building.
This applies to nearly every type of project, from residential extensions to commercial sheds. Whether you're constructing a carport, shed or brand new house, the council in which you live will want a say.
Development approval process
In order to be approved for a building project, you must generally submit a development application form, certificate of title, development application fees and site plan to your local council, as well as provide any necessary copies.
Development approval can include development plan consent, building rules consent and land division consent.
These relate to how a project may impact other construction in the area, the technical requirements of the construction and how it could change boundaries between properties.
Regardless of where you're building, it's clear to see that the process can be both complex and time-consuming.
