Getting a development application over the line can be one of the most challenging aspects of the development process.
Developing residential property in Australia, means
complying with legislation from all levels of government but mostly from the
Local council will determine if your plan meets the
criteria, zoning requirements, laws, policies and local legislation.
What is a Development
A Development Application is a formal request to build or
carry development within a Local Government Area.
A DA includes:
· Architectural Plans
· Independent Reports
· A statement regarding political contributions
· Construction certificate
Submitting a DA can be confusing, here is a list of
professionals that you may want to include in your proposal:
· Town Planner
Storm water Engineer
The length of time to assess a DA varies on the complexity
of the project and where it is going to be built. All councils have a maximum
time period in which they are required to respond to a DA (generally 60 days).
Some of the most common mistakes that people make on the
applications are not ensuring that the correct landowner details are provided,
missing deadlines for complying with assessment time-frames and not being aware
of all site constraints.
Be as transparent as possible when submitting an application
as any missing information will only result in delaying the process.
