Suburbs situated in the Ku-ring-gai Council area have bushland, well-preserved Heritage Conservation areas and homes that have been well-built.
Renovating a home is an exciting and serious undertaking. To be able to develop designs in the Ku-ring-gai area, it is essential to consider the local Council’s requirements for building, bushfire and Heritage.
It is easy to fall in love with Ku-ring-gai for its excellent schools, lush scenery, along with local and national parks. Ku-ring-gai is arguably one of the best and most peaceful Council areas in Sydney.
If you love the area and your home is need of a change, a renovation is a wonderful way to update an older home, accommodate a growing family and add your own style to your home.
Home Renovation in Ku-ring-gai Council
When you think about renovating your home, you consider factors like your family’s needs, your budget, your property’s location, and your dream design. If you live in the Ku-ring-gai Council area, there are three elements that characterise many properties in this area.
- Well-built comfortable family homes needing updating
- Heritage Conservation Areas
- Bushfire affected properties
Comfortable homes that need updating respond well to a style that is sympathetic to the existing property. If your home is in good condition then extending and renovating can result in a new home feel.
Heritage Conservation Areas constitute a number of streets where the overall effect of the houses, and sometimes the landscape, creates a streetscape that is representative of the history of the area. Any changes to the size or aesthetics of these homes will require an approval by Ku-ring-gai Council.
The beauty of the bush is perhaps one of the many reasons you moved here. These things of beauty can be managed with successful designs. To renovate on bushfire-prone land a high-level of expertise regarding the specific materials for each BAL (Bushfire Attack Level) rating is essential.
Ku-ring-gai council is focussed on approving designs for homes which are suitable for the area, especially in Heritage and Bushfire areas. Designing homes which are suitable for the area is the best way to obtain Council approval.
