Siting Dispensation

As set out in the Building Act 1993 and the Building Regulations 2018, a report and consent is the process for consulting with and obtaining the approval of a reporting authority when building work may affect assets, infrastructure or amenity of the community. These include siting of a dwelling and projections beyond street alignment.

Dispensation requires comments from adjoining affected property owners. These comments can be submitted on application or sought by Council on the applicant's behalf.
