What approvals do I need? - Shade sails
|Description||A shade sail is a shade cloth structure designed to provide permanent shade that is attached to steel posts, the dwelling or surrounding structures. If a non-pervious roof covering is to be used, ie. canvas sheeting, please also refer to the Patios information page.|
|Do I need approval?||
Planning approval is only required when the proposed shade sail varies to the standards of the Residential Design Codes.
Shade sails need a building permit when the structure exceeds 20m2. A permit is not required for a shade sail that is less than 20m2 and less than b2.4m in height unless there is already an existing shade sail on the property.
