    Just wondering if anyone knows what's the largest sized garage I could construct if I have a backyard with about 15m x 13m available plus I would like to go as high as I can e.g. 5.0m. This is assuming I pay for any boundary relaxations. I own the property next door so no issues with building close to that boundary. Ideally I'd like to fit a 12m x 10m x 5.0m garage in but I suspect this is not allowed by the clowns at the Brisbane City Council.

    Also does anyone know if underground basements are allowed by the BCC?

    Sorry Chewy but don't you think you'll get a more accurate answer ringing the council direct.

    I can't imagine any answer you get on an Internet forum will be anywhere near reliable for something like this ;)

    Ring the council, BCC has been very helpful for me in the past. Surprising for a government department!

    My brother has just been through this in Melbourne. Council were fine but one of his neighbours was an arse. Played up about it. The council said as long as it was to the correct standard for the area and complied with all regulations he could go for it. It's high so my brother being nice offered to pay the neighbour for some screening trees if he wanted them. The neighbour told him to get lost and took him to vcatt. It went to to vcat and the neighbour lost as it was to spec. After loosing the neighbour said to my brother he wanted him to pay for the screening trees. Brother told him to get lost.
    Talk to the council first. Some are good to deal with some are not.
    Good Luck

    Yeah check with council. Sometimes you can build a Zero maintenance wall on a boundary
