I'm looking to improve a terrace house, it currently only has a carport, and I am looking to enclose this carport to be more of a garage. My question is, firstly, I assume I would need a council approval, is this correct? And what's the best way to handle this? Should I get a builder and will they do all the council paperwork? or do I need an architect? Lastly, could someone recommend the builder or tradie for this type of work? The property is located near redfern/waterloo. Any info would be helpful. Many thanks in advance!!!
