Complying development

The term Complying Development refers to specific development types identified as having minimal environmental impact and which are assessed against predetermined development standards and the Building Code of Australia.

A Complying Development Certificate (CDC) is issued for a successful application and is a combined planning and construction approval. A CDC can be issued by Council or a private certifier. To lodge an application for a CDC with Council, complete the Complying Development Application.


How Long Will my Application Take?

Complying Development applications lodged with Council generally take a maximum of ten (10) business days to determine. The faster assessment time is due to the fact that the approval is based on pre-determined development standards that require the submission of more detailed plans and specifications. Unlike the development application process, it is not a merits based assessment.
