Is a fast-track approval process for straightforward residential, commercial and industrial development.
A Complying Development Certificate is a fast-track approval process for straightforward residential, commercial and industrial development without the need for a development consent or construction certificate. This is because it is considered to have low environmental impact.
Your proposed development must fully meet specific development standards as set out by the State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008, and can be determined by us or an accredited certifier upon application.
You should also be aware that you’ll need to obtain a Section 307 Certificate of Compliance under the Water Management Act 2000 before any Complying Development Certificate is issued by us or a private certifier.
We'll need to assess your development to confirm if any Section 64 contributions are payable. You can do this by submitting a Section 305 Application with us.
