Is Council Approval needed for a backyard cabin? 

Depending on what you are using your cabin for, you may not require council approval for your backyard cabin.

In NSW, some structures can be put in under exempt development, meaning you don’t need council approval. Click here for more information.

If you are looking at putting in a granny flat, studio, home office or pool cabana, you may need to get council approval. Check with your local council as to their requirements.
