    Hi all.

    I heard that every building over 20sqm should aplply the DA

    BUT is it 20 correct not 60?

    And what other exemption for if the building or container house is under 20sqm?

    Seriously, You need to learn to walk before you can run. All these questions are best answered by calling up a building surveyor, architect or a building practitioner and paying for some advice.

    The question you are asking has no head or tail. If in Victoria, any brand new structural building would need a building permit or possibly planning permit. Trying to get minimum ceiling heights or minimum dwelling size has no bearing on anything.

    Start reading the BCA code first.

    What the hell's a "building practitioner"? Is that a brick layer that charges $10ph more than the going rate?

    All councils are different, so even if it is a complying development, there will be a process, only in some areas you may be able to put up certain things without council being involved, you need to know what you want, then read council regs or call them up.

    In most council, even putting a container in your backyard need approval,
    20' GP Container Dimensions 5885mm long 2350 wide 2403 tall
    it's bigger than the 'shed' in most council.
    In short , you should have obtained council approval before you got the container dumped on your front lawn.
    Which I am talking is use the container as a shed for storage not living, still need approval.
