Complying Development Certificates

A complying development certificate (CDC) is an alternative to a development application. A CDC is a process implemented by the NSW State Government to fast-track town planning and building approval process for straightforward residential, commercial, and industrial developments.

A CDC, if it is feasible, is in effect, a combined DA/CC and this removes the need to be referred to Council prior to issuance. These projects must meet a strict list of state government criteria and can be approved by a registered certifier. CDCs are issued if a proposed development complies with relevant planning and building controls under the Building Code of Australia (BCA).

East Coast Approvals Group can issue CDCs. The certificate must be obtained before any building work commences, including site works like excavation
