The Complying Development Process in New South Wales

So, you’re looking to build or renovate in New South Wales? That’s exciting! But before you start picking out paint colors, let’s have a closer look at the Complying Development process. Complying development is a fast- track approval process for straight forward residential, commercial and industrial developments. If the project meets specific development standards, it can be assessed and determined by a council or a registered certifier without the need for a full Development Application (DA).

  • 1

    Determine What Type of Residential Development You Are Proposing
    What’s the plan? Are you building a new house? Adding an extra room? Pool in the backyard? Knowing exactly what you’re planning to build is important because different types of projects have different rules. We can help you correctly identify the category of development and help to identify the rules that apply.

  • 2

    Determine if Your Project is Exempt Development
    Some projects don’t need any formal approval because they are considered “exempt”. Exempt Developments are generally minor construction work and renovations such as building a fence or adding a small shed. We can help you identify if your proposed project is considered an Exempt Development.

  • 3

    Confirm if Complying Development is Permissible on Your Land
    Now we need to find out if you can use the Complying Development process for your project. Sometimes, land that is impacted by heritage or environmental sensitivities have restrictions which means Complying Development is not permissible. The best way to determine permissibility is by obtaining a Section 10.7 Planning Certificate. You can purchase this from Infocert or your local council.

  • 4

    Confirm if Your Project Meets the Relevant Development Standards
    This is a very important step. Your project has to follow certain rules called development standards. These rules have constraints such as how big your project can be, how much outdoor space you need, and how far from the edges of your land your building should be. It is always prudent to consult with your builder or developer to make sure your project meets these standards, however, Buildcert will assess your plans to avoid any issues down the track.

  • 5

    Confirm Your Project Meets All Other Requirements
    Besides the basic standards, there’s some additional requirements you and your developer need to be aware of. This includes building specifications, fire safety measures, and structural integrity. Buildcert reference the Building Code of Australia, Australian Standards, and any other rules to ensure compliance.

  • 6

    Lodge a Complying Development Certificate Application
    The last step is to apply for a Complying Development Certificate, or CDC for short. This is the green light you need before you can start building. You can apply through Buildcert or your local council. Make sure to provide your detailed plans and any required documents.
