Melbourne Builders,  we have just received a couple of important Building Regulation amendments that have been in the pipeline for some time now.

1.  Walls on boundaries now can be up to 200mm instead of the 150mm from the boundary and still be deemed on the boundary. Yes for those of you that have been around long enough it used to be 200mm.

2. The averange wall height on the boundary has been increased to 3.2m which was previously 3.0m. Not a huge increase but significant enough to avoid unnecessary report and consents for nominal falls in the natural ground level. Also the planning schemes have been amended to incorporate these changes, so there will be no conflict on these Regulations.

The Team at Fast Track Plans & Permits wish all our loyal customers, contractors and trades a happy and healthy 2014.
