Here, we’ll guide you through the essential information you need to know when considering the construction of a granny flat in Perth.


Minimum Property Size and Maximum Floor Area
To build a granny flat in Perth, you must have a minimum property size of 450 square meters, unless your local Council specifies otherwise. The maximum floor area allowed for a granny flat typically ranges from 70 to 100 square meters, depending on your local Council’s regulations. In rural areas, you may find greater flexibility in these limits. Keep in mind that approval from your local Council is typically required before renting out your granny flat to non-family members.

Same Block Requirement
A crucial point to note is that a granny flat must be built on the same block of land as an existing home. If you have vacant land available, you are not permitted to construct a granny flat as the first building on that piece of land. Each single plot of land is limited to having only one granny flat.

Location Matters
The location of your property can also influence the construction of a granny flat. If your granny flat isn’t close enough to a train station or a frequent bus route, you will need to provide an additional car bay. The required distances are typically 800 meters from a train station and 250 meters from a frequent bus route.

Fencing Regulations
Fencing is another important consideration when building a granny flat. The minimum distance a granny flat must be from a fence is three meters, but this distance may increase if your granny flat is taller. These regulations are in place to ensure adequate privacy between the occupants of the granny flat and neighboring properties. The specific requirements may vary depending on your local Council’s regulations.

Design Harmony
When constructing a granny flat, it is essential to consider its design in relation to the existing house. Your granny flat should complement the design of the main house by using similar materials, colours, scale, and architectural elements. This ensures a cohesive and visually pleasing appearance for your property.

At Harali Modular Homes, we understand the intricacies of local Council regulations and can guide you through the process of designing and building your granny flat while adhering to these guidelines. Our experienced team is dedicated to delivering granny flats that not only meet regulatory requirements but also exceed your expectations in terms of functionality and aesthetics.
