If you’re planning to build a granny flat or additional accommodation on the Gold Coast, you need to understand what’s required before your project can proceed.
Building approval is required before you can build a granny flat or extra bedroom on the Gold Coast. We can introduce you to people who offer to help our customers through the planning and approval process. Depending on which installer or builder you’re using, they also might be able to help you with approval requirements. Movable buildings (Backyard Pods built on skids) might suit some projects without a building permit being required.
