Award winning granny flat design
Wondering whether your backspace project will require council approval?
The NSW Affordable Housing State Environment Planning Policy (SEPP) allows granny flats in NSW to be approved as a complying development. This policy permits residential homeowners to build a granny flat on their private property, as long as they meet the minimum requirements. Namely, a property larger then 450m2, with a minimum 12m street frontage.
As long as the criteria above are satisfied, residential homeowners do not require any granny flat approvals on their property. If you’re still unsure, take our survey below to determine whether your project will require council approval.
