Building Guidelines

GARC has requested that in future, layouts for adjoining properties are submitted when plans are submitted.

Please note that low garden walls must be a maximum of 1.2m and not 1.4m. It appears that in certain of the guidelines, 1.4m has been specified.

Please note:
Prior to commencing any work, architects should request a copy of the latest placement plan for their site, from the Committee.
