Case Study:

Granny Flat & Studio


Have you ever wondered about what else is possible on your land, or perhaps, looked at your yard and thought there must be a better way to utilise the space?

Council Approval Group are experts at looking at a site and assessing the highest and best use for your land.

Over the years, many clients have come to us wanting to explore the potential for a granny flat or studio. For some, they may have an elderly family member they would like to look after. Others require a separate space to run a home office from. Some clients are hoping to establish a second income stream to make their property work harder for them.

Whatever your reason may be, Granny flats and studios continue to be a wonderful addition to improving the highest and best use of a site.

Our Town Planners have completed hundreds of these projects over the years and we specialise in uncovering options that perhaps you never thought were possible.

For this particular project our client’s brief was to maximise the dwelling space across the block of land by exploring the potential for either a studio or granny flat.

The Solution

Our Town Planner completed a Preliminary Planning Assessment on the site and uncovered the ability to offer our clients an attached studio that the owner could use as an artist studio.

In addition to this, through careful design and optimising the sloping block, they were also able to include a granny flat.

You can imagine the elation of our client when realising the value that had been added through clever planning and design.

"Fantastic company, very friendly and lovely people. They looked after everything from A to Z and they got the job done and the final result was achieved smoothly. Highly recommend this company, excellent results." -Zeina A
"I can't recommend Council Approval Group highly enough, right from my first contact with Anthony through to the PPA meeting with Ken & Betsy. I had already applied for a DA for a granny flat which was rejected by council. Both Ken & Betsy fully reviewed my application and gave me all the necessary information I needed to lodge an updated DA." -Wayne Cornish
"We can’t thank Max and Lauren enough for making us feel confident in guiding us through the process of applying for a DA for our Granny Flat." - Tony Messina
