Water tanks are becoming more popular due to the dry weather experienced over the past years. The higher demand on water supplies has seen the government change the building regulations to include water tanks as part of new 5 star residential energy provisions for developments.
In most cases a building permit is not required as a water tank is not considered to be a building. However if a tank is contained within, on a proposed building or supported by an existing building the following construction requirements should be considered.
