So can I build a granny flat in my back garden? My name is Colin Fragar from Council Approval Group. If you’re asking yourself that question, congratulations, my friend, I want to give you some answers today that will help you to decide whether or not you can get Council Approval for a granny flat in your backyard.

Now, the answer is dependent on your local government areas. Depending on which provisions we use, sometimes there’s some loopholes or some ways that we can expedite and quicken that process of getting approval. But if you’re asking yourself that question, you’re looking at your backyard you thinking, there’s a decent amount of land here so maybe I could maybe get it in my backyard. Or you might be thinking maybe I could get it in my basement or maybe I could convert my garage and get all the approvals in place properly.

We would like to be able to answer that question for you. So in order to be able to answer that question, if you just kind of want some general information, then I would recommend this magazine. It’s called Your Ultimate Guide to Council Approval and it’s really good reading. There’s 40 pages on the council approval process and, in particular, we have a page here or two which goes through the granny flat process in depth. So make sure you grab your copy, we can mail that out to you. This is based on our 50 plus consecutive years of experience.

Also, I would like to offer to you an opportunity for us to have a discussion.

Take the Next Step

Whether you can get council approval and achieve a granny flat in your back garden is a very exciting prospect. And my last tip would be make sure you get the right advice. Because you could be standing on the very edge of financial security, on the edge of extra rental income.
What would that mean to you and your family if you’re able to get an extra $200, $300, $400, $500, or even $600 per week?
How many thousands of dollars would that add to your lifestyle every single year. Imagine the financial security that you would have. But don’t rely on the advice of a draftsman. And don’t rely on the advice of talking to council. Make sure you talk to a qualified town planner. Make sure you book in for consultation with one of our team.
