    I have a massive living room which could easily be divided in half in order to create another bedroom.

    Generally do you require council approval to add a non-structural internal wall?

    I know it differs from council to council, but was just after a general idea for now.

    Thanks

    You generally don't need Council approval for non structural changes. This is common across all Victorian councils.

    However, consider light and ventilation requirements for habitable rooms.

    You can also talk to Council for guidance.

    Thanks for the reply. That's what I thought. There is plenty of light and ventilation (A large window that opens) for the proposed extra bedroom.

    I'll contact the council for further info.

    Thanks again.
