Most Mums and Dads are keen to give their kids traditional childhood experiences of the non-digital kind. Which is why tree houses have made something of a comeback in recent years.
But the world has moved on from the innocent times of large yards and laisser-faire councils, and some Mums and Dads are finding their best intentions thwarted.
If you’re considering a treehouse or cubby, get in touch with your local council and provide them with your proposed plans. It is also a good idea to talk to your neighbours and other local property owners who may be impacted by your proposal.
You may be surprised to know that under Council ordinance there are many factors that must be assessed when a tree house or cubby is erected. Some of the more prevalent factors to be considered are:
- the proposed dimensions of the structure
- proximity of the structure to boundaries and fence lines
- the impact the cubby or tree house will have on the amenity of neighbouring properties and the amenity of the neighbourhood generally
- privacy implications where it overlooks neighbouring properties
- the obstruction of views that were previously enjoyed by nearby property owners
While most councils have the authority to provide retrospective approval for a cubby or tree house that is the subject of a complaint, this is by no means guaranteed.
