Good Evening

Depending on the size of the shed he may need approval. You should contact the council and ask what their requirements are.

Also in relation to building noise there are rules set out by the Environmental Planning Act and if they do not comply you can contact council and have them come out.

The guidelines are set out in the link below.

But council inspectors can deal with this

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.

Regards
Leon
