Below are the basic steps to removing a dwelling.

  1. Weigh up all your options and costs.
  2. Purchase the removal house.
  3. Visit our website for information about building approvals.
  4. Speak to a town planner to confirm whether you need planning approval.
  5. Complete a Concurrence Agency Referral Form, and pay the application fees and bond (Council only).
  6. If the removal house is originally located in the Redlands, apply for Amenity & Aesthetics – Removal Dwelling.
  7. Organise:
    • approval to use state roads for the relocation—contact National Heavy Vehicle Register or call 1300 696 487
    • building, plumbing, electrical and other required work
    • plumbing approval (through Council) for the new location
    • domestic driveway crossover approval (through Council) for the new location
    • water supply (through Redland Water) for the new location
    • final building approval (through a private certifier) for the new location.
