This questionnaire will help you work out whether you need to contact council about building a platform on your property.
A deck is a flat platform adjoining a building, usually without a roof. They are typically elevated from the ground and made of timber. Porches and verandas are very similar, but are usually roofed structures that runs along the outside of a house. If you are looking to build a porch or veranda, please see the porch and veranda questionnaire.
