Do you need strata permission to put up a freestanding shed in your yard? – Renee, NSW
A: It is recommended that you get strata permission for this. You may also wish to look through your strata by-laws to see if there are any existing rules around the matter.
The main reason is so that your owners corporation is aware of the change, and so that any documentation (if required) can be drafted and finalised. This will enable you to have the shed on your property without concerns that you will have to take it down because it breaches by-laws/proper approvals.
