The term Complying Development refers to specific development types identified as having minimal environmental impact and which are assessed against predetermined development standards and the Building Code of Australia.
A Complying Development Certificate (CDC) is issued for a successful application and is a combined planning and construction approval. A CDC can be issued by Council or a private certifier. To lodge an application for a CDC with Council, complete the Complying Development Application.
