Site Excavation/Filling

If soil conditions, ground levels, excavation of filling make it necessary to protect buildings or structures in the vicinity of building work –
  • Retaining walls must be built or other suitable methods used to prevent soil movement; and 
  • Drainage of the land, buildings or structure must be provided.
Refer to Schedule 1 of the Building Regulations 2006 to determine if the work is self-assessable.

Where the work is not associated with building work then a development permit for operational works may be required. Enquiries should be referred to the Duty Planner.
