3 TOPTIPS to consider when starting a project in The Grampians
1. SHARE IDEAS
Connect with locals. A local builder, working full-time in the industry, should be your No.1 guide. With local knowledge and experience they will be able to provide the relevant contacts for planning & building authorities and give you your starting nuts & bolts.
For instance, the Bushfire Management Overlay (BMO) has been applied to most of the Grampians. Building works in a BMO area may require a planning permit to ensure bushfire hazards, such as vegetation, slope and site access are assessed, and that bushfire protection measures are in place to manage risk. The BMO Information for Landowners by the State of Victoria DELWP is a helpful read.
