Do I need a plan & council approval to add a patio roof/awning to my home?
The answer nobody wants to hear is Yes. Cape Town city council does require a plan for the addition of a patio roof/awning, it is best to obtain the plan & council go-ahead before installing the awning to prevent any fines & a mad scramble to update your house plans before the sale of your home.
Some awning installers will tell you, you don’t require plans, best to confirm this with your local council office. We as installers don’t require a plan, but you as the home owner do. If you have a body corporate where you live it’s best to check their requirements as well before installing a patio roof/awning.
