Exempt Development is a form of development that, by its nature is considered to be minor, if it satisfies a number of set conditions. This form of development does not require the formal approval of Council.
Schedule 2 of the Albury Local Environmental Plan 2010 lists certain Exempt Development Types.
In addition on the 27 February 2009 State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008 (the Codes SEPP), which has state-wide application commenced. This new Codes SEPP contains exempt development types and complying development types for certain types of development.
A copy of the Codes SEPP and further information on the General Housing Code is available at: www.planning.nsw.gov.au/housingcode. For further information or specific questions in relation to the Codes SEPP please email: email@example.com or call the Department of Planning's Information Centre on Free call 1300 305 695 or 02 9228 6333.
Is your proposal Exempt Development?
Council has provided Exempt Development Guidelines to help you identify if your development is likely to meet the requirements for Exempt Development. If your proposal is not classified as exempt you should also check the Complying Development section.
Note: It should also be noted that a number of other exempt development types are contained under separate State Environmental Planning Policies such as State Environmental Planning Policy (Infrastructure) 2007. If you are unsure if your development is 'Exempt', please contact AlburyCity's Planning & Economic Development Section on 6023 8111.
