Building and renovation
Whether you're a home builder and renovator or a developer, architect, certifier or other professional, you need to ensure that you stay safe and avoid damaging our utility infrastructure. Failure to do so can have dangerous and expensive outcomes.
Before you do anything else, go to Building near utlility assets to find out what services exist on your property and where they are. Then you need to comply with the various requirements for minimum clearance around different types of utility infrastructure — whether that infrastructure is above, below or at ground level.
Be aware that you may still have legal obligations regarding building and access requirements even if the relevant infrastructure is located adjacent to your block and not within your property’s boundaries. Minimum distances still apply.
Are you a home owner and planning a building or renovation project? Regardless of whether you will be engaging professionals or doing it yourself, avoid expensive mistakes by making sure you understand your responsibilities in the process and being well prepared.
For architects, designers, builders, certifiers and other professionals in building, development and trades, we provide a step-by-step guide to meeting ActewAGL's building requirements. You can also use our online services form for professionals to request information and submit multiple applications for a range of services and approvals.
