A Complying Development Certificate (CDC) is a combined planning and construction approval for certain developments that meet specific development standards. These applications are determined by Council or an accredited certifier through a fast-track assessment process.
CDCs are available for a range of development types including:
- single and double-storey buildings
- secondary dwellings
- renovations to an existing house
- swimming pools
- retaining walls
- demolition of a structure/building
- advertising signage
- fit-out of commercial building
If your application does not satisfy all the requirements for approval as a CDC, you will need to either alter your proposal or submit a Development Application and Construction Certificate.
