Building A New House
Dec 10, 2007 4:26 pm
The DCP where we are building requires 9 foot (2.7) ceilings.
This adds quite a bit to the cost of the house and to be honest we aren't really fussed about having 9ft ceilings. (We will be complying with the DCP in all other respects.)
The council planner has told me (verbally) we can apply to vary from the DCP but we need to justify the variation.
I was wondering if anyone out there has successfully justifed having a lower ceiling height than what is stipulated in the DCP?
Thanks in advance

Is it the council Development Control Plan that has placed this requirement or is it a convenant on the contract placed by the developer?
I have a requirement regarding the land slope and needing to have a split level house. We have only dropped one room slightly and were given a verbal okay, will be submitting to council shortly. You could always try the same route, just raise one section ( lounge, rumpus etc.) and see what they say.
