    Hi guys
    Have an IP on corner block in Melb. Would like to fence it all off. Understand I need to submit application to council including a drawing.
    Does anyone have recommendations for a draftsman to help me with this?
    Thanks

    What type of fence? Pretty sure if it's timber you don't need a permit but just need to follow their guidelines and regulations.

    Hi Hodge

    Yes timber slats fence, just lay one slat horizontally above another up to 1m high max.

    It's Frankston Council ...

    @Hodge thank you for your input! on the back of your comment I decided to call Council again
    this time I was able to speak to someone different from building division who confirmed no building/development app or planning permit required if fence is up to 1m
    thank you! wouldve wasted so much time and money getting draftsman etc

    Good to hear. Pretty sure council my area allow up to 1200mm in height but could be wrong.

    Good to see you've got it sorted - for future reference most councils have a page on the requirements Frankston below.
