If building work is to be carried out as “complying” development, no building work is to commence until a Complying Development Certificate has been issued and a Principal Certifying Authority (PCA) has been appointed. Council must be given at least two days’ notice of the commencement of the building work, which will be completed by Buildcert on your behalf. Council does not require any notification when “exempt” work is carried out.

Where development consent (Council DA) is required for building work, no work can commence until Council has granted consent, a construction certificate has been issued and a Principal Certifying Authority (PCA) has been appointed. Council must be given at least two days’ notice of the commencement of the building work, which will be completed by Buildcert on your behalf.

Buildcert can approve Complying Development Certificates, Construction Certificates and provide Principal Certifying Authority (PCA) services for your development.
