Guide to Complying Development

Community Participation Plan

The Department of Planning and Environment have developed a Guide to Complying Development, which outlines whether exempt or complying development is applicable or possible for your project.

Homeowners and developers can use this Guide to understand the legislative requirements for developing small scale residential projects, for example, building a new one or two storey home or home renovation.

This Guide also provides guidance for industry professionals including architects, certifiers, local councils, designers and others to assist in the design and assessment of complying development applications.
