A building permit is a formal approval to construct, add to, move or remove a building/structure on your property.
A building permit must be obtained for the construction of a new building/structure, or an addition or alteration of any building/structure which results in a building area of more than 10 m2 (108 square feet).
If the contractor or designer obtains the building permit on your behalf, it is still the building/property owner who is ultimately responsible for complying with all building requirements.
