All new patios, even if replacing an existing structure, will need Shire approval. Depending on the type of dwelling, dimensions of the structure and how close to the boundary you want to build your patio or carport, you may need to obtain neighbour comments and the application may need to go through both Building and Planning approval with the Shire, as well as Water Corporation approval.

Approved_imageIf it all sounds confusing, that's OK, as we make this as simple as possible for you by handling most of this process ourselves. We will provide you with all the required forms and wherever possible, we will pre-populate them for you. If neighbour comments are required, we will give you the form: all you need to do is ask the owners to sign it.

The only thing you need to provide is a copy of the site plan for the residence, or something we can use as a site plan. Again, we are happy to look at what plans you have to determine what we can use. In the worst case scenario, if you don't have anything that can be used as the site plan, you would need to purchase this from your local Shire.

Waiting times for approvals differ from Shire to Shire, however, on average, most shires say anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks.
