Residential Building Permit and Approvals
You must get a building approval before any building work can start. No two houses are the same. That means every job needs to be designed properly to ensure you can get a building approval.
HIA’s Planning and Building team is made up of planning and building professionals with a range of experience in planning, building and engineering.
We can help you:
- Understand the requirements for getting planning and development approvals for new homes, renovations, dual occupancy and townhouse developments, subdivisions and more
- Get help with questions about building approvals and inspections, local government licenses and charges
- Advise on the approvals needed before building or renovating a home.
