Step 1 – Do I need Council approval?


For development of a minor nature, you may not require approval to undertake the work.  To find out whether your proposal is able to be considered as Exempt Development please consult Council’s Exempt Development page.  If your proposal does not meet the exempt criteria, you may be able to obtain a quick approval either through Council or a private certifier using the Complying Development Certificate process.  To find out whether your proposal is able to be considered as Complying Development please consult Council’s Complying Development page.
If your proposal is not exempt or complying development, you will need to submit a Development Application (DA) to Council. See steps below.
