What happens if I do work without approval?

If you build something that needs permission without first obtaining it, or do not satisfy the terms of any conditions you may be required to correct it later, which could prove troublesome and expensive. You  risk having to remove an entire building if it is not authorised.  If the Council considers it necessary it will take enforcement action which will require you to cease activities, or demolish problem buildings. Failure to comply with a notice could involve criminal proceedings.

Advice on our Enforcement Policy and how to lodge a complaint about potentially unauthorized work is available on our Enforcement page.
