There are factors that determine this. Generally the Building Codes ( R-CODES) state a formula for building on boundaries and there are strict rules governing this, especially for Two Storey homes. The relevant Local Council usually has it’s own rules that must be respected too. In most, but not all cases, neighbour approvals may be required. If your block is one of a number of small blocks there may be ‘caveats’ put in place by the developers to allow boundary construction with automatic approvals. East perth and Subi-Centro are examples of where this was the case. If a neighbour has already built to a boundary then you may be able to do the same.Each block has it’s own considerations to be aware of. Our advice is essential when planning your home and we check with the Local Council Planning departments throughout the design process.
