When undertaking any type of land development in Western Australia, a Feature and Level Survey is the first step in the process and necessary for a Planning and Building Application.

What Do They Show?

They detail all information about the property, adjoining properties and features in the street, in fact everything that is required by your local council to modify or develop property and land.

The survey information is used by council, architects and builders to see factors such as:

  • ground level
  • contours
  • existing structures
  • adjoining structures
  • fences
  • utility services
  • drains
  • trees etc

All of these things have a bearing on what is possible in terms of design, building, land development and subdivision.

It’s vital to have a feature and level survey done first to avoid disappointment and costly mistakes later during the building process.
