- Class B (medium rise, up to 3 stories)
- Class C (low rise, residential, up to 2 stories)
- Class D (non-structural work)
- Specialist Building Work (demolition of a building or installation of a swimming pool).
It is recommended that you contact the Agency prior to undertaking any building work.
Please be aware that you must submit a building approval for all building projects and a notification of demolition work for all demolition work that you intend to undertake.
