Default Anywhere Left in Australia That's not Subject to Building Codes?



Advertise Here

I get jealous browsing other parts of the forums where Americans get to build whatever the hell they want in their little corner of the country.

So I have been wondering is there anywhere left in this country where you can just plonk down a shed or some shipping containers, or even just dig a hole in the side of a hill and live in it? Without being subject to some council telling you what you can and can't do?

Not looking to do anything dangerous, illegal or damaging to the environment as such.

1. Remote location or at least a part of a property that isn't visible from the street. Good 6' high fences with gates that are kept locked.

2. Don't ask for permission from a council. Usually 3 x 3 metre sheds don't require council permission, nor do carport type structures measuring 6 x 6 metres. Put up one of the latter and put under it what you will.

3. Build small. E.g A tiny house could be made to look like it was mobile even if it wasn't.

4. Use dense foliage to disrupt outlines of whatever you're building. Paint roofs of small buildings in a cammo pattern so that they're not obvious to aerial surveillance.

5. Don't talk to anybody about what you've built.

On rural land some buildings are exempt development.

Be aware that, in NSW at least, government inspectors are legally entitled to enter and inspect your property for weeds.

Yeah... we only get to do that in certain areas. Most of 'merica has stupid people enforcing stupid rules that were made up just so they could say they did something.

Or they came up with those "stupid" rules to keep people safe from oh I don't know earthquakes,Hurricanes,Floods,Fires? Rather than get suckered into buying a property that is not safe and up to any codes electrical/structural. Let's see here. live in a state that allows that and you build sub-standard housing that can kill the inhabitants. After you dust off your hands because they have no horse in the race vs. building sound homes that protect people. I'm not a fan of big government but one area I don't mind is building codes.

Very remote areas are your best bet. There is a term for it, basically anywhere there is not a council.

Very remote areas may be too harsh to survive in. Not a good choice for someone who identifies as a survivalist.
