Protection of adjoining property is required when significant damage could occur to the adjoining property from the proposed building work, and as directed by the relevant Building Surveyor.
Some examples of when protection works may be necessary are:
- where the proposed footing system undermines the adjoining footings
- where overhead access into adjoining property airspace is proposed (eg. overhead cranes)
- where retaining walls or excavation of soil is proposed, at or near the dividing allotment boundary
- where building works are proposed at or near the allotment boundary that could result in significant damage occurring to the adjoining property.
