Domain – What are the rules for Granny Flats?

Granny Flat Rules

iBuild has once again been featured on the property website Domain in a story that asks, “What are the rules for tiny houses, WFH pods and backyard cabins?”. The story was published across Nine Entertainment media websites the Sydney Morning Heard, The Age, WA today, the Brisbane Times and the Australian Financial Review.

Journalist Jane Hone interviewed iBuild Project Manager Peter Kiraly to find out the rules that determine if a granny flat can be built as a second dwelling on a person’s property. Hone notes that every granny flat will need a planning and building permit at a minimum. Whilst iBuild’s own Peter Kiraly is quoted on the importance of understanding your local council’s regulations.

Every job’s different it depends on what municipality you’re building in. Is it a built-up environment? Is it regional? If it’s regional, then it definitely becomes a lot easier.

Peter Kiraly, iBuild Project Manager

Hone writes that the rules around granny flats vary greatly depending on where a person builds in Australia. The rules are manageable and clear if you have an expert helping you every step of the way.
