Notwithstanding the CDC architectural plans, here is an explanation of the most common documents required for a complying development certificate.
Section 10.7 Planning Certificate
A Section 10.7 Planning Certificate is a legal document that confirms the zoning and applicable rules for the development of your property. You can purchase a planning certificate from your local council website.
A survey plan from a registered surveyor should show the position of all existing structures, with floor level & ridge height of the main building, the front setbacks of the two closet neighbouring dwellings (within 40m) on the same side of the street, existing ground levels and existing vegetation and building on the site.
Certificate of Title
A certificate of title confirms the official ownership of land. It also confirms if any easements and positive covenants are present on the lot. You can purchase the certificate of title from any of these documentation brokers.
If the certificate of title confirms either an easement or positive covenant is present on the lot, a 88B instrument and deposited plan must be purchased to provide further details about the easement and/or positive covenant. You can purchase the 88B instrument from any of these documentation brokers.
If the certificate of title confirms either an easement or positive covenant is present on the lot, a deposited plan must be purchased to provide further details about the easement and/or positive covenant. You can purchase a deposited plan from any of these documentation brokers.
Waste management plan
A waste management plan identifying all waste (including excavation, demolition and construction waste material) that will be generated by the work on the site. The plan must also confirm the amount of waste being recycled and reused. If the existing building includes asbestos materials, the waste management plan must also address how the asbestos will be safely removed and compliant.
Only required if the existing building contains asbestos.
Engineering Plans and Documentation
Only if the proposed building to be demolished is within 900mm of a boundary with an adjoining lot. A professional engineer’s report must be provided with an application for a complying development certificate, confirming the engineering support methods.
Adjoining wall dilapidation report
Only if a building to be demolished is within 900mm of a boundary, and there is a wall (the adjoining wall) on the lot adjoining that boundary that is less than 900mm from that boundary.
We hope you like this guidance.
