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.
