This question was recently raised by a reader regarding louvre awnings:

Do I need building plans for a louvre awning size of 6m x 4m, to be installed in my backyard.The two sides will be attached to the buildings exterior wall, rest is pole support?The paved floor is continuous with the rest of the paved yard.

The short answer is Yes!  Les says:

Louvre awnings are considered to be a fixture and you would, therefore, be required to submit plans to your local municipality for approval.
