BUILDING LOCATION PLAN
Building location plans are simple site plans that show the position of a building relative to the boundaries. They are used when there is minor construction or where the new building works are at minimum allowable distance to the boundary.
If you plan to raise a house and build under you will need to know if the house will comply to setback requirements and that any new construction under the house meets fire separation rules.
Building designers will request a house location plan so that they can design with confidence.
If we have measured the building before design the designer and builder will meet the correct siting requirements. We can return to site, quickly check the construction and issue a compliance certificate.
When we are asked to certify the location of the final construction and we have not previously measured the building we need to do the complete survey, establish where the boundary lies and write a report to the Building Certifier when there is a problem.
If the proposed building work is close to the minimum siting setbacks then the Building Certifier will always ask for a location certificate.
