Retaining Wall

A retaining wall is a structure erected to support excavated or filled earth on a property.

The installation of a retaining wall is the responsibility of the landowner that has excavated or filled their land.

Adjoining landowners may become involved when the retaining wall is located on the common boundary of both properties and/or the wall is for the benefit of both properties.  In the case of a common retaining wall, the two adjoining landowners must agree on any proportionate costs. Council cannot act as a mediator in relation to costs.
