When undertaking a building project, it’s always wise to get authorisation and approval before you commence. Otherwise, you may be faced with a surprise visit from your local Authorities, face a hefty fine, be required to demolish your development, or worse, face future legal consequences.
But often, there’s a grey area when it comes to your work. Without the right advice, you may not even realise you’re doing anything wrong.
And, in some cases, it may not even be your fault. Existing unauthorised works may already have been undertaken on your property when you purchased it—and you’re left to bear the cost.
If you’ve undertaken development without Council approval, this is a situation that can be solved. It just takes time, some planning, and knowledge on how to manage the process smoothly.
At CIVAC we make sure that you’re able to receive the necessary approvals to help your project go ahead. Our experienced team of Town Planners and Project Managers will look at the building work that you have carried out and determine what’s required to be lodged. Then, we undertake the process to enable you to receive authorisation for your unauthorised works.
Here’s how we do it.
