Q&A: How close can we build to the fenceline with an alfresco area?

Desi asks: How close can we build to the fenceline with an alfresco area?

Hi Desi,

Thanks for your question. Generally, there needs to be 3 metres from the back of your alfresco to your rear boundary. But this measurement changes between councils and new developments. We recommend that you contact your council (if you are building in an established suburb) or land developer (if you are building in a new estate) to find out exactly what the measurement is for your block of land.

Hope this helps.
