Complying Development Certificates

This is a fast-track approval process for straightforward residential, commercial and industrial development. As complying development involves larger building projects than exempt development ‘sign off’ by a building professional (known as a certifying authority) is needed.

A complying development proposal is required to fully meet specific development standards and requirements. Either Council or accredited certifier can determine a Complying Development Certificate application without the need for a full development application. For more information on Complying Development Certificates see Complying Development.

  • In Person at our Customer Service Centre at 366 George Street Windsor, between 9am and 4pm, Monday to Friday.
