Development Consent - Bathurst Regional Council - New South Wales

Description

You will need Development Consent in order to undertake development activities.

There are 3 different categories of development:

  • Exempt Development - this includes activities such as minor, do-it-yourself, renovation work. For example, replacing the tiles in your bathroom or erecting a pre-fabricated structure such as a garden shed. Exempt development activities do not require council approval.
  • Complying Development - if your proposed development meets the standards for a Complying Development Certificate, it can be approved through this fast tracked process. This certificate can be obtained if your proposed development meets predetermined standards such as maximum building height, length and width.
  • Development Application - for more complicated development proposals.

If your development is approved under a Complying Development Certificate, once the work is complete, the council will inspect the development to ensure that it has met the agreed guidelines and grant you final approval with an Occupation Certificate. Please note that building inspections may take place throughout the development process.

If your development is approved under a Development Application, you will need a Construction Certificate before starting your development work. Once the work is complete, the council will inspect the development to ensure it has met the agreed guidelines and issue an Occupation Certificate.

Before you apply for Development Consent, it is recommended that you contact your council for a pre-lodgement discussion.
