First, if you are trying to do this yourself, please book in for a consultation to speak with one of our team because we specialize in these areas. We specialize in the hard projects.

So, we want to make sure that the secondary dwelling you’re proposing is the right one. We don’t want you to put in an application to council or into the certifier a project that you’re going to have to live with and later think, “Oh but I could have got better than that. Maybe I could have got a better project or I could have got a larger project. I could have designed that better”.

Please stand on the shoulders of giants and let us help you with your secondary dwelling by using all of the experiences that we’ve had.

Finally, I recommend that you grab your copy of Your Guide to Council Approval. It is our magazine which we will pop in the post for you. It has a bunch of tips and tricks in there for you. Hopefully that helps and we look forward to continuing on the discussion.
