Looking to build a shed in the Macedon Ranges? You can find all the information you’ll need RIGHT HERE.
You will need to secure a building permit from the Macedon Ranges Shire Council if you shed matches any of these four criteria:
- Your shed is larger than 10m2 OR your shed is 3 metres high OR your shed is higher than 2.4 metres and is 1 metre from a boundary.
- The shed is attached to an existing building.
- The shed is going to be built over an easement.
- The shed is attached to the front wall of your dwelling.
If your planned shed matches any of these criteria, you will need to get a building permit. If you are planning on engaging a professional builder, they should be able to handle your permits internally and save you the trouble.

How To Calm A Skittish Horse
Easy-to-frighten horses are skittish and can be difficult to work with. But if something in the environment is scaring your horse, there are ways to help your horse be more calm.
Researchers tested three different methods to find out which was the most effective.
The Fear Stimulus: A white nylon bag.
This research used a white nylon bag that was able to be moved along a line. This was found to be universally uncomfortable for horses, and provided a good test stimulus.
The Habituation Method
Horses were exposed to the nylon bag repeatedly until they had become more calm.
The Desensitization Method
Horses were gradually exposed to the nylon bag. The first stage was much less intense than later stages and horses only moved onto the next stage when they were totally comfortable with the current stage.
The Counter-Conditioning Method
Horses were given food rewards every time the nylon bag appeared. This intends to build up a positive association that overcomes the negative association of the fear response.
Most effective method: Desensitization
The desensitisation method was the only method that worked for all participating horses. It was the most effective, longest-lasting and fastest process.
