Illegal Building Work

Illegal building or demolition work is work that is done without the correct planning, building and/or plumbing approvals.

If you carry out work without a permit, you may be required to re-do the work and obtain the required approvals or remove/demolish the illegal works. Rectifying illegal building work can be costly and there may also be increased fees if you are issued with an infringement notice. Illegal building work also impacts the value and future sale of your property.

Before undertaking any work at your place, contact Council to find out what permits and approvals are required. For more information about illegal building work, click here
