Retrospective Council approval, also known as retrospective building permit, is essential when structures have been constructed without prior approval from the local council. We understand that unauthorised building works, such as residential or commercial additions, patios, decks, carports, sheds, pools, shade sails, concrete structures, walls, and fences, can occur for various reasons. However, gaining retrospective approval is crucial to ensure compliance with regulations and avoid costly consequences.
