A Construction Certificate is required in addition to a Development Application for any development involving building.
Such applications may be lodged and processed concurrently with Development Applications. A Construction Certificate Application is seeking building approval. Either Council or an accredited Private Certifier can issue a Construction Certificate as the Principal Certifying Authority (PCA).
Applications for a Construction Certificate will require:
- A copy of the plans submitted with the DA;
- At least one detailed cross section showing construction details such as roof trusses;
- Details of provisions for fire safety and resistance (if any);
- Window size schedule;
- Structural engineer’s details of any footing, concrete slab or proposed retaining walls requiring approval;
- Details of proposed insulation (including R rating); and
- Specification details.
A Construction Certificate Application must be submitted through the NSW Planning Portal. Council is unable to accept an application by traditional methods (e.g. in person, via e-mail or via post).
Once submitted in the NSW Planning Portal, Council will undertake a preliminary check to see if all the information required for the application has been uploaded into the NSW Planning Portal. Council will then contact you to provide additional information (if required) and pay the relevant application fees.
