Under Exempt Development, if you build your deck, patio or pergola within the specified regulations than you can build without council approval. Building a deck, patio and pergola without council approval all fall under the same category of Exempt Development, so they have the same building regulations. These regulations specify that your deck, patio or pergola must:

  • Have an area of no more than 25m squared, and
  • Not cause the total floor area of all such structures on the lot to be more than:
    (i) for a lot larger than 300m2—15% of the ground floor area of the dwelling on the lot, or
    (ii) for a lot 300m2 or less—25m2, and
  • Not have an enclosing wall higher than 1.4m, and
  • Be located behind the building line of any road frontage, and
  • Be located at a distance from each lot boundary of at least:
    (i) for development carried out in Zone RU1, RU2, RU3, RU4, RU6 or R5—5m, or
    (ii) for development carried out in any other zone—900mm, and
  • To the extent it is comprised of metal components—be constructed of low reflective, factory pre-coloured materials, and
  • Have a floor height not more than 1m above ground level (existing), and
  • If it is a roofed structure attached to a dwelling—not extend above the roof gutter line of the dwelling and be no higher than 3m at its highest point above ground level (existing), and
  • If it is connected to a fascia—be connected in accordance with a professional engineer’s specifications, and
  • Be constructed or installed so that any roof water is disposed of into an existing storm water drainage system, and
  • Not interfere with the functioning of existing drainage fixtures or flow paths, and
  • If it is located on bush fire prone land and is less than 5m from a dwelling—be constructed of non-combustible material, and
  • If it is constructed or installed in a heritage conservation area or a draft heritage conservation area—be located behind the building line of any road frontage.
