Complying Development Certificate Applications

Complying Development has undergone major changes. Accredited certifiers are now able to approve and inspect a wide range of development.

It is now possible to approve developments such as single and two storey dwellings, dwelling additions, swimming pools, granny flats (secondary dwelling), outbuildings in the domestic realm of development. Additionally complying development certificates can now be issued for commercial development in relation to change of use of a premises and internal alterations.

In assessing applications for complying development certificates, Urban City Consulting does this in a two stage process.

In order to undertake initial assessment of the complying development certificate application, we will require a 149(2) planning certificate from the respective local council area.

149 Planning Certificate provides all the relevant planning information for the subject property. These certificates can be obtained from your local council.

Development Applications
 

Urban City Consulting can prepare and lodge a development application on your behalf.

There are different types of development recognised by council, Urban City Consulting will be able to identify your project by type and address the council’s requirements specific to the type of development proposed.

To prepare any development application Urban City Consulting will require some initial information about your proposed development including plans, specifications, and a sketch of the proposal and a description of the ongoing operations of the proposed activity.

We prepare development applications for a wide range of projects ranging from residential, domestic development through to commercial and industrial development. 

Development applications are a complicated process so the approach may differ depending on the proposed development.

 


Occupation Certificate Applications

At the completion of a project, the applicant is required to obtain an occupation certificate.  An accredited certifier cannot issue an occupation certificate until the development has complied with the conditions of councils consent and is compliant with the Building Code of Australia (BCA).
