Do I need development approval to install a rainwater tank?
In some circumstances rainwater tanks which meet certain criteria do not constitue development and therefore do not require development approval.
If your proposed rainwater tank:
- is part of a roof drainage system;
- has a total floor area not exceeding 10 square metres;
- is located wholly above ground; and
- has no part higher than 4 metres above the natural surface of the ground then it may not require development approval.
