does anyone know when building works that are part of a renovation go from being 'an existing dwelling' to a 'new construction'?
I have tried googling and left a few message for council but no luck to date.
This query relates to a renovation in a BAL 40 & FZ area, the house was stripped back to the frame work with no roof or internal or external walls. The existing footprint was extended on 3 sides (including 1 on the BAL FZ side) and some additional framework on another (also BAL FZ) plus a new 1st floor addition.
DA compliance indicates if new construction then AS3959 standards must be met but if existing dwelling just needs to be upgraded to reduce ember attacks.
thanks in advance for your help
