Council Approvals

Its worth a short discussion about council approvals and how they are relevant or otherwise when relocating a house or building.

Council approval is generally required whenever a building is to be permanently fixed to a site. For portable buildings used for temporary accommodation, or site offices etc, council approval may not be required.

Removal Homes (i.e. used conventional housing being relocated or removed) usually require approval to be removed from the existing site (in addition to approval to place on a new site). The owner of the site is usually responsible to obtain such approval, and its normally the same type of approval required to demolish a house.

The approvals process for putting a used house on a new site is similar to the process used for a new home application, but there is usually a lot of extra information needed by council to assess the application. For this reason it is a good idea to employ a consultant to help you who is familiar with the requirements and thereby avoid delays and problems.
