The BMO includes a number of permit exemptions which can be found within clause 44.06 of the planning scheme. Generally, a planning permit for an outbuilding is not required when all the following are met:

  • The floor area is less than 100 square metres.
  • The outbuilding is not used for accommodation.
  • The outbuilding is ancillary to a dwelling located on the land.

Other exemptions may apply and should be discussed with your local council before making an application.
