Yes, you do!

Follow this flowchart and all will be clear

  • If the garden shed is installed on heritage or draft heritage conservation area AND NOT Located in the rear yard then you need a permit;
  • If the garden shed is installed on land in a foreshore area then you need a permit;
  • If the garden shed is Higher than 3m Above ground level then you need a permit;
  • If the garden shed is located less than 900mm from each lot boundary then you need a permit;
  • If the garden shed is a shipping container then you need a permit;
  • If the roof water from the garden shed is not disposed of without causing nuisance to adjoining owners then you need a permit;
  • If the garden shed interferes with the entry to, or exit from another building, or the fire safety measures contained within the other building then you will need a permit;
  • If the garden shed plus any other developments on the lot exceed 2 developments then you will need a permit;
  • If the garden shed Has a floor area of greater than 20 meters squared then you will need a permit. As yours is only 9 meters squared you are ok and providing you meet all the other tests, you will have an except development;
  • If the garden shed is not going to be placed on land zoned Residential then you will need a permit;
  • If the garden shed is not constructed of low Reflective, factory Pre-Coloured materials then you will need a permit;
  • If the garden shed will be placed on land zoned as RU1, RU2, RU3, RU4 or R5 and the shed has a floor area of greater than 50 meters squared then you will need a permit;

Wow there is a lot to consider. So the short answer is that you will need council approval to put a garden shed in your front yard.
