Instead of being assessed under the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act, these developments are assessed under the provisions of the State Environmental Planning Policy (SEPP) Exempt & Complying Codes.
Exempt Development may include low impact structures such as fences, decks, carports & rainwater tanks.
Complying Development may include new dwellings, alterations to dwellings, pools, internal alterations to commercial buildings and industrial buildings, shop fitouts.
Land based exclusions such as heritage, bushfire or flood control may prevent complying development on your land.
First and most important step is to obtain a Section 149 Planning Certificate from your local council to find out if any restrictions apply to your land.
Greenfield Certifiers engage an expert town planner to assess and provide advice in regard to this Code. It is a risky process for the inexperienced and Greenfield Certifiers make sure you are issued with a valid planning approval.
Non-compliant complying development certificates are at the top of the disciplinary action list of the NSW government.
Don’t risk it – engage Greenfield Certifiers – the experienced professionals.
