Retaining Walls and Embankments - Residential

Retaining walls are sometimes required to facilitate proposed ground levels on a lot.

If the proposed retaining wall is substantial a building licence will need to be obtained from the City's Building Service prior to construction.  In some instances in addition to a building licence, a development approval may also need to be obtained from the City's Statutory Planning Service.

Depending on the extent of the retaining works a minor retaining wall may sometimes be constructed without the approval of the City.

An embankment may require the approval of the City by way of a Development Approval depending on the height of the embankment.
