No­tify neigh­bours of your build

Southern Riverina news - - BUILDING & RENOVATION -

Build­ing works can cause dis­rup­tion, but talk­ing through your de­signs and likely time­frames with neigh­bours will usu­ally help al­le­vi­ate con­cerns be­fore the work be­gins.

The De­part­ment of Plan­ning and En­vi­ron­ment en­cour­ages talk­ing to your neigh­bours as early as pos­si­ble in the design process to help en­sure the devel­op­ment is as smooth as pos­si­ble for all in­volved.

While there is no for­mal pre-ap­proval no­ti­fi­ca­tion re­quired in res­i­den­tial re­lease ar­eas and most ru­ral and re­gional ar­eas, it is still a good idea to make your neigh­bours aware of any devel­op­ment pro­pos­als.

Once your com­ply­ing devel­op­ment cer­tifi­cate has been is­sued, you must no­tify neigh­bours prior to any work com­menc­ing. If you live in ru­ral and re­gional ar­eas or a res­i­den­tial re­lease area, you must give your neigh­bour two days’ no­tice.
