Over the years, the process of demolishing a house has become more and more regulated. In most cases, you now need a permit to demolish a house in Brisbane. The application process for a demolition permit in Brisbane is relatively simple, but there are a few things you need to know and be aware of before you start.

We can help you with the entire process of applying for a Brisbane demolition permit, as well as carrying out the demolition itself. We have years of experience in demolishing houses in Brisbane, and we know all the ins and outs of the permit process.

How Does It Work?

Step 1
Determine if You Need a Demolition Permit

The first step is to determine if you actually need a demolition permit. In most cases, you will need a Brisbane permit if you want to demolish an entire house. However, there are some exceptions. For example, you may not need a permit if you are only demolishing a part of the house, such as an extension. Properties located under the Traditional Building Character Overlay may face additional considerations to preserve Brisbane's architectural heritage.

If you’re not sure whether or not you need a permit, we can help. We will assess your situation and let you know if you need a permit or not.

Step 2
Submit an Application for a Demolition Permit

If you do need a permit, the next step is to submit an application. Before proceeding with any demolition, obtaining planning approval is crucial to ensure your project aligns with local development regulations. The application process varies from council to council, but in most cases, you will need to fill out a simple demolition form and submit it to your local council.

Securing council approval is a pivotal step, ensuring your demolition adheres to all local guidelines and regulations. We can help you with this step as well. We can fill out the forms for you and submit them on your behalf.

Step 3
Wait for Approval

Next, Once you have submitted your demolition application, you will need to wait for it to be approved. This can take a few weeks, but in most cases, it won’t take longer than that. We liaise directly with Brisbane City Council to navigate the complexities of council approval for your demolition project.

If your demolition application is approved, you will be issued a demolition permit. This permit will allow you to proceed with the demolition of your house.

If your application is not approved, we can help you appeal the decision. We have a lot of experience in this area, and we can help you increase your chances of success.

Step 4
Demolish the House

Once you have been issued a demolition permit, you can proceed with the demolition of your house. We can help you with this step as well. We have the equipment and expertise necessary to carry out a safe and efficient demolition.

If you need help and assistance with any step of the demolition process, we are here for you. We can help you determine if you need a permit, submit an application, and carry out the demolition itself. Contact us today to learn more about our services.

What Are The Requirements?

There are a few requirements that you need to meet in order to apply for a demolition permit. First, you need to own the property that you want to demolish. If you don’t own the property, you will need to get permission from the owner before you can proceed.

A structural engineer may be consulted to assess the property’s stability before any demolition work begins, ensuring a safe procedure.

All demolition projects are conducted in strict adherence to the Brisbane City Plan, guaranteeing compliance with city-wide development strategies. For houses constructed prior to certain regulations, we provide specialised demolition services mindful of historical and structural considerations.

Second, you need to have a valid reason for demolishing the property. In most cases, you will need to demonstrate that the property is structurally unsound or that it presents a danger to the public.

Third, you need to have a plan for what you will do with the property after it has been demolished. In most cases in Brisbane, you will need to submit a development application along with your demolition application. This development application will need to be approved before you can proceed with the demolition.

Finally, you need to make sure that all utilities have been disconnected from the property. This includes water, gas, and electricity. If any of these utilities are still connected, we can help you disconnect them. Alongside the demolition permit, building approval might be required for any new constructions planned post-demolition.
