Step 1 - Does your development require approval?
If your development is of a minor nature, you may not require approval to carry out the work. Council and the NSW Government have adopted policies that specify minimum criteria you must satisfy in order to not require an approval from Council. If your proposal falls outside the minimum criteria, you may be able to obtain approval through Council as a
Certificate. To find out if your development can be approved as Complying Development, please refer to the Complying Development web page or the Department of Planning and Infrastructure web page at
If your proposal is not exempt from approval or Complying Development, you will then need to submit a Development Application to Council.
