1. Check if you need a consent to build a retaining wall

​Have your plan ready

Before checking whether you need a consent for your retaining wall you need to know:


dimensions of the project (height, total area)

location on property where the project will go

size of the property in square metres

total pre-existing building coverage on property

total pre-existing hard surfaces on property.

There will be an explanation on how to calculate these factors in the online consent tool.
