Do you need plans for a pergola?
Thereof, do you need council approval for a pergola?
No planning approval is required for a pergola. Pergolas need a building permit when the structure exceeds 20m2. A permit is not required for a pergola that is less than 20m2 and less than 2.4m in height unless there is already an existing pergola on the property.
Furthermore, is a pergola considered a permanent structure? Pergolas are open structures with an open covering that is not considered a complete roof. They do not alter your home's structure. Their posts do not penetrate deep into the ground if they are not secured above ground. Therefore, a pergola does not usually require a building permit.
Furthermore, how much does it cost to put in a pergola?
For a basic 10-by-10 pergola using cost-effective cedar, expect to pay $3,000 for materials and $500 for labor, which isn't that much more than a DIY job. High-end pergola installations using more expensive materials such as Ipe or Teak can run the price up to $5,000 for materials and $750 to $1,000 in labor.
