Provisional Development Plan Consent - District Council of Grant - South Australia

Description

Persons wishing to undertake any form of development require development plan consent. Each proposal is assessed to ensure it conforms with the relevant development plan for the proposed location of the development. The development plan sets out provisions in relation to the design and location of development and contains zoning and design criteria. Development means building work, a change in the use of land, subdivisions, work in relation to State or local heritage places which could materially affect the heritage value of the place, prescribed mining operations, the forming of certain levees or mounds, coastal protection works, display of certain advertising signs and excavation or filling of land in prescribed zones.

It must be noted that the Development Plan Consent will only grant approval for change of land use. Any building work associated with the application will also require Building Rules Consent, prior to the issue of a valid Development Approval. Additional Building fees are calculated based on the building classification and floor area.

The Council is generally the decision maker for applications. However, some applications will require consultation with Government agencies and/or public notification before a decision can be made.
