Get the Right Advice on a Granny Flat in a Flood Zone

If you’re contemplating building a granny flat, it’s really important to get the right advice straight up. Because, particularly if you’re in a flood zone, there are some tricky issues that we need to navigate for you. The cards are stacked against you.

There are some ways that we can get around it but it depends on which area you’re in, jurisdiction, and planning instrument we’re going to use as to whether we can get a granny flat for you in that flood zone.

Are You Ready to Take the Next Step?

What I recommend is that you grab a copy of our magazine Your Ultimate Guide to Council Approval. It’s a very special magazine we put together. There are a whole bunch of tips and tricks in here which we would love to send your way.

And also if you do have a site in mind and you are really struggling with some questions, I recommend that you book in for a free consultation with one of our team. Now we won’t be able to answer the technical questions around the exact flood levels for your site in that 30-minute consultation. But what we will do is unpack what you want to do, help you to navigate through that next step and to paint a clear roadmap going forward.

My name is Colin Fragar and we hope to talk to you soon.
