Council Report

Council Reports

Building improvements and alterations are now common investment options for many property owners. With a timely and well-planned improvement and alteration, it can help refresh the looks of the property, boost its aesthetic value, provide comfort to members of the household and even increase its market value. While a planned improvement and renovation will bring a host benefits, it is not recommended that you instantly work with a construction company. Some preparations must be in place, and reports must be drafted and completed to get local council approval.

The Council Report is an example of a regulatory requirement, and it must be filed before the local council can approve the proposed improvement and alteration. If a report is not filed, and no approval is received, but the construction pushed through, the property owner may be charged a fine or may be required to take out the improvements made. To stay on the safe side, it is best to coordinate first with the local council and get professional advice from the planning officer.

When Do I Need Local Council Approval?

A local council approval is required if there are planned changes and improvements on the property. Whether these changes are structural or aesthetic in nature, it is important to file a report to obtain a council approval. You may need local council approval if you want to add another floor to your property, or if you want to redesign or reconfigure internal spaces like the garage or patio.

What Will be the Basis for Council Approval?

The local council will start checking and validating the application once the council report has been submitted. The council will assess the report and application based on the following:

  • How the project will impact the environment and nearby properties
  • How your neighbours and the community will accept the development
  • How it will fit in the neighbourhood

The submission of a competent report is critical in obtaining a local council approval. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you work with industry professionals like architects, landscapers and builders who are familiar with local council procedures. Although the filing of the report may appear like an additional burden to property owners, the presence of these procedures will protect and promote the interests of all stakeholders, including the property owner who values aesthetics and the privacy of the neighbourhood.
