DA Approval (Private Certifier)

DA Approval (Private Certifier)

Before undertaking any demolition work on a residential property, legal approval has to be obtained.
A Complying Development Certificate (CDC) is a combined planning and construction approval that determines whether a demolition can go ahead. It is issued by a Registered Certifier and does not require a separate council development application approval.
The Complying Development Certificate can be fast-tracked with approvals being granted within 20 days for demolition work that adheres to the NSW SEPP 2008 (State Environmental Planning Policies). The SEPP simplifies the process for providing infrastructure across NSW.
In the Greater Sydney area, the local council and neighbours must be informed when a CDC application has been granted (pre-approval notification). Some CDC applications can only be approved after the 14-day notification period has passed (depending on the local council and the residential area/property).
Once the Complying Development Certificate has been issued, it is valid for 5 years from the date of issue. The applicant/property owner must inform the neighbours in writing at least 7 days (for metropolitan Sydney) or 2 days (for regional NSW) before the demolition commences.
