Do I Need a Building Permit for a Pergola?

Coastal Patios

Pergolas are structures that support climbing plants and provide shady areas where homeowners can sit and enjoy the outdoors. Pergolas have a floor or platform to put chairs or tables on and may have a screening or a roof. Timber flooring is a popular choice for pergolas Noosa wide, and for pergolas Sunshine Coast wide.

Permits for Pergolas Sunshine Coast

There is a more relaxed regulation around pergolas than other structures here in Queensland, so there is a good chance that your pergola permits are easier to obtain if your pergola is small and does not exceed 2.4m in height. If you were thinking of a more ambitious project, however, it would be wise to consult your pergola builder Sunshine Coast team here at Coastal Patios for advice.

Keep Distance Between a Neighbours’ Property & Your Pergolas Noosa

Whilst small open-roofed pergola structures may not require permits, it is always a good idea to consider building your structure further from the property line, if you can. This way, your pergola doesn’t affect your neighbours’ land and you may be able to add changes to the structure later.

If you wanted to extend, or put roofing on your pergola using the same footprint, you may find that your pergola no longer meets council regulations. Our pergola builders Sunshine Coast team has over 20 years of experience in constructing pergolas Noosa wide and we pride ourselves on our work. We will make sure that all of our construction meets council specifications.

Get a Quality Result with an Accredited Builder

Often, pergolas have no roof and don’t need to meet as many engineering requirements as carports and patios. For any pergola project, we would advise you to seek a professional, accredited builder. You are more likely to get the quality result that you want, and you can rest assured that your structure will be safe. Coastal Patios will make sure that your pergola meets the council standards and regulations.
