Hi, I was hoping I could clear up some confusion I'm having with keeping chickens in Logan City. I have 3 hens on a block of 960 square metres so I know they are permitted, but do I still need a permit or approval? Thanks in advance,,
Pete

sometimes its better to ask for forgiveness than permission, most times if you have good neighbours you will not have problems.

Pevan,The short answer is that you do not need Council approval as you have sufficient land for hens (upto 20), but no roosters! (Unless you get some rooster collars to minimise their crowing noise. :idea: - my comment, not LoganCity)

http://www.logan.qld.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0020/80264/Poultry.pdf Explains it all very well.

In anycase NO council has chook and rooster detecting crews driving around looking for miscreants !!

They only react to complaints from people living around you. The complaints are not only based on noise though. They can also be for smells in wet weather and at other times, visual effects, and in some areas - distances from structures.

As Andy said, seeking permission raises a number of issues.

Thanks everyone. On re-reading the council sheet it is very clear. I've ticked all my boxes as far as coop size, distances etc. As far as noise goes my little flock of three runs for cover when the lorikeets move in for a feed from the neighbouring tree every afternoon! Thanks again,
Pete
