If your property is located in a flood prone area, you may need to apply for consent before commencing building work. This is usually required before applying for a building permit.
Land that is subject to flooding is protected by a special building overlay (SBO) or land subject to inundation overlay (LSIO).
To find out if your land is in a flood prone area, you can request a property information certificate from Council.
Before submitting your application, we suggest speaking to your building surveyor to find out if consent is required.
