Carports and Garages
Yes, a building permit is required for a carport or garage.
A garage is a structure capable of storing a car, and has at least two-thirds of its sides closed by walls. A side within 500mm of a boundary is considered to be closed.
A car parking space is generally a minimum of 2.6m wide and 4.9m long. This equates to 12.74 metres square. If you build a structure any larger than a car parking space (as defined above) you need to apply for a building permit.
