At Woodford Homes, we understand how overwhelming the thought of dealing with your local council can be. This is enough to put some people off extending, renovating or building their new home. However, there are several reasons why each of these things requires permits, paperwork and certificates, and they want to ensure that each home project ends up being:
- Efficient — Energy and water efficiency for environmental purposes, this also benefits you as it helps to reduce the relevant costs through lower consumption.
- Environmentally-Conscious— Some building materials can be bad for the local flora and fauna’s stability, and it’s the government’s job to ensure that each new housing project is safe and environmentally responsible.
- Safe— Your home is an important asset that shelters and protects your most precious valuable — your family. Additionally, the Blue Mountains and Penrith Valley are home to some of the most breathtaking views, but they’re also some of the areas most prone to bushfires. Your local council’s job is to ensure that each new home project follows all of the regulations and codes to keep everyone safe, and these include ensuring you follow very stringent conditions and requirements.
Let Woodford Homes Handle Your Council Approval Process
All of the above factors mean that there is a good deal of paperwork involved in the approval process and petitioning the council for your permits and certifications.
