Quick & Efficient Complying Development Certificates in Sydney

Key complying development information

Complying development refers to specific types of development that meet predetermined standards and requirements set out in the relevant state or local government planning codes.

The main advantage of complying development is its fast-track approval process. Once the application is submitted and all criteria are met, approval can often be granted within a short period, usually a few weeks.

Complying development typically includes projects such as small-scale renovations, home extensions, certain types of demolitions, decks, carports, fences, and minor building works.

Complying development must strictly adhere to predetermined development standards, which may include size limitations, setbacks, height restrictions, and other relevant guidelines.
