A Complying Development Certificate is a type of planning and construction approval issued by either a local council or an accredited private certifier. It is an alternative to a Development Application and a Construction Certificate for certain types of development that meet specific criteria outlined in the State Environmental Planning Policy 2008.

A construction certificate is required to be issued by the building certifier before building works can start. The construction certificate verifies that the construction plans are consistent with the development consent (DA) and comply with the building code of Australia (BCA).

Class 1 and Class 10 building approvals in Sydney refer to different types of buildings categorised under the Building Code of Australia (BCA). The BCA classifies buildings into various classes based on their use, size, and occupancy. Specifically:

  • Class 1a buildings: Class 1 buildings are houses. Typically, they are standalone single dwellings of a domestic or residential nature. These buildings can also be horizontally attached to other Class 1 buildings.
  • Class 10 buildings: These are non-habitable structures that are detached from the main building, such as garages, sheds, carports, and other similar structures.
