Owner-builders are persons who construct for themselves a residential house or an industrial/commercial building, including additions.
To become an owner builder, where the value of the building works exceeds $20,000, you must submit an application form, pay the application fee, and proof of identification for either a Residential Owner-Builder Statutory Declaration or an Industrial Owner-Builder Statutory Declaration to the Building Commission. Evidence of being granted approval to build as an Owner-builder must be received by the Shire before the Shire can issue you a building Permit.
