Unfortuntely, no timeline was mentioned by builder for the appeal.
A bit frustrating re BAL result - but as always council's decision takes precedence.

Hi Cooky,
By any chance, would you have a link available for the guidelines that I can reference to - in regards to metal fencing allowed if you have a BAL…

Hi MK,
My builder initially had a BAL Zero report from their consultant and this was submitted to council. However, council came back with BAL 12.5.
I would have liked to…

Thanks jagand, point well taken. Just an update, spoke to council and they said metal fencing is allowed except for side facing public…

Cool, I'm BAL 12.5 too! Guess I can get away with metal fencing and take the $1000 bond from New Breeze with no issues then.

Thanks jagand, have you done you fencing yet? Are they Timber or Colorbond?

Hi Cooky,
I'm on a corner block too!
Out of Curiosity, are you now planning to have timber fences on all sides?
Also, do you know which BAL rating requires a colorbond?

Hi Guys,
Hope everyone is well and safe in this uncertain times.
Can anyone please recommend someone who can do driveways and letter box? I'm also looking for fence builders too.
If you…

From my understanding, colourbond is fine if it's hidden from view e.g rear and sides.
They would only require timber when you are on a corner lot where one side…

I got my DA approved by council last year in 6 weeks but this was without a granny.

Depending on wind direction, I can hear loud traffic noise from my house sometimes it's low. But regardless, I agree that they should build a sound barrier like similar to…

Thanks for the update NZ89
Also noted re council contact.
I'm currently building too and I hear the noise whenever I come visit.

I agree 100%. If you think it's loud when your close to public school then I suppose living close to the creek is way louder which is where I am.

I was on the same boat.
Initially, my builder had BAL-Low report from their bush fire consultant.
Unfortunately, it was overruled by DA stating new construction has to comply…
