    Hi Matt

    It is against the law to commence building works without having a Building Warrant approval in place for the works, therefore you will require a set of Architects drawings to be prepared and submitted with a Building Warrant Application to your Local Council.

    It can take around 4 to 6 weeks to get the approval from the Council before you can start work.

    Hope this helps.

    If you require any further information please get in touch.

    Regards
