Single Dwellings & Outbuilding Sitings

The Building Regulations 2006 now provide for siting matters that have traditionally been dealt with under the planning approval system. 

These matters include:

  • Minimum street setbacks
  • Side and rear setbacks
  • Fence heights
  • Walls on boundaries
  • Overlooking, solar access and daylight availability to windows

Variations to the provisions of these regulations require the submission of an application for Report and Consent (see below forms).

Council can only provide consent to a varying layout or design when in accordance with Ministerial Guidelines.

Councils building surveyor can provide further information of the siting provision for single dwellings.
