Understanding cut & fill restrictions, regulations relating to maximum driveway grades, building height regulations and restrictions on the overall bulk and scale of new homes is vital.
More and more Local Councils are now also insisting that new homes are to be designed with more character and articulation. Gone are the days where Council would allow builders to cut and fill blocks level from boundary to boundary.
Councils are now requesting designs that eliminate any excessive Cut and Fill at property boundaries which in the past has brought endless problems to both home owners and their neighbours.
