Moveable homes like caravans, manufactured and tiny homes may need approval before you install or modify the structure. Just like permanent structures, moveable homes require access to utilities and therefore require approval. It’s also important to check if the location is bushfire or flood-prone.
- Installing a manufactured or relocatable home in a caravan park
- Installing a manufactured home or relocatable home in a manufactured housing estate
- Installing a manufactured home or relocatable home outside of the two above on private property
Follow these steps to obtain approval:
- Seek approval from the owner/operator of the land, caravan park or manufactured home estate
- If any part of the park or estate is flood-liable, new installation work requires Section 68 approval. If the land is not flood-prone, installation does not need Council approval. Only the approval from the owner/operator.
- Application to install manufactured home or moveable dwelling
- Notice of completion of installation
You don’t need approval if you’re carrying out general maintenance, repairs, renovations, or if the installation is in a park or estate that is not flood prone.
