Complying Development

Complying Development is a quick, simple alternative to the Development Application (DA) process. Under the DA process, each application is subject to a ‘merit-based’ assessment. However, a Complying Development satisfies a range of predetermined planning standards and does not require the merit assessment.

A Complying Development is a building approval only. As is the case with Construction Certificates, Council or an accredited Private Certifier can issue a Construction Certificate as the Principal Certifying Authority (PCA). At the time of lodgement, the owner must appoint a PCA. Inverell Shire Council currently operates under the State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008.

Further information regarding State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008 can be found at www.planning.nsw.gov.au/housingcode.
