I live in Avoca beach on 1000sqm on a sloping block, the usable space available is probably around 15 to 20%, therefore I’d like to extend the existing deck on the top floor and a new deck on the bottom floor. The deck on the second floor will be around 60 sqm as well as the deck down stairs.
I’ve been reading about Floor ratio space and wondering if this applies to decks.
I’ve also read that the max area a deck can be is 30 sqm. If I submitted at DA with the deck size no more than30 sqm would I then be submitted a complying development. Therefore if I wanted to submit a design over 30 sqm it would be a standard DA?

Hi Dunstar Welcome to the forum
Here in WA Floor ratios exclude, Decks, Balconies, basements,lifts, Roof top terraces,etc, Though overlooking and height restrictions maybe an issue, please check with your Council
Here's the process for a roof top conversion to terrace. the upper floor Suspended 3c slab was in place already and extends the full area
1. Submit plans for DA approvals
2. Engineer to certify "as built structure" is suitable for conversion
3. Submit plans for Building Approvals
4.You will require the usual approval and certificates for, energy, Engineering,Compliance,etc
5.. Enjoy the views
OT, this an excellent example of a now cheap retrofit, Initially the 3S house was built during the Perth Building Boom and the owner held off building the terrace til later
BTW photos help.

It is pretty straight forward, mine cost about $5k at start of the year with United Energy in south east Melbourne. All I did was complete the form as well as the sketch.…
