Full-service in building a garden shed in Australia

Though council regulations usually differ, there are some general rules concerning some areas of Australia.

There are some circumstances when you don’t have to obtain any council approval to place a garden shed in your home:

  • If your shed in no more than 10 square meters; 
  • is not more than 3m in height, or no more than 2.4m in height within 1m of the boundary; and 
  • If you want to locate your shed no more than 9 meters from the front street; 

When you live in a bushfire-prone area, you must build your shed with inflammable material and no closer than 6 meters to another building. 

If you need a large shed to use for some more functions than just a storage for tools, it is a requirement to have council approval for that purpose. The easiest way to do this will be to apply to licensed and experienced companies for the supply and installation of your shed. They can provide you with all the necessary papers so you’ll be able to use your shed even as a workshop or home office.
