Other animals

The keeping of animals such as birds, chickens, rabbits and reptiles means the owner must ensure their pets do not impact neighbours. 

Complaints generally occur due to the number of animals being kept, how they are contained or housed on the property and the conditions in which they are kept.

Enclosures can be constructed for birds, chickens and other animals without the need for approval from Council, as long as they meet certain height, size and location requirements. 

For more information about these requirements view State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008.
