Works without a Permit (Illegal Works)
Under Tasmanian Legislation, Municipal Councils are responsible for enforcement action against properties & owners where illegal (i.e. without a permit) building works have been done.
Should Council be made aware, or discover that a property has buildings works without approval; we are required to take action. This action may result in the demolition of the building work or in the requirement to obtain a retrospective approval.
Should you believe that your property has some unapproved building works, you are encouraged to Contact Council’s Building Officers to discuss your options for obtaining approval.
Please be aware that it is common for illegal works to prevent or hinder the potential sale of a property.
