  21. Other points to consider whether complying development applies: Other points to consider • It is not a merit based assessment • You cannot rely on local knowledge or visual checks • Ensure that plans accurately reflect the site characteristics and proposed development

  22. What sites are excluded? • Exempt & Complying Development • Environmentally sensitive areas including: • Coastal waters of the State • Coastal lake • SEPP No. 14 Coastal Wetlands or SEPP No. 26 Littoral Rainforests • Aquatic reserve or marine park • Wetlands of international significance or World Heritage • Land within 100m of Coastal Wetlands, Littoral Rainforests, aquatic reserves, marine parks, wetlands of international significance or World Heritage

  23. What sites are excluded? (cont.) Exempt & Complying Development • Aboriginal cultural or high biodiversity significance • State conservation areas • Land reserved or dedicated for preservation of flora, fauna, geological formations or environmental protection purposes • Critical habitat under the Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995 or Part 7A of the Fisheries Management Act 1994

  24. What sites are excluded?Complying Development • Heritage items or draft items • Heritage conservation areas or draft areas • Wilderness areas • Land reserved for acquisition • Land on Acid Sulfate Soils Map (Class 1/2) • Bush fire prone land • Flood control lots

  25. What sites are excluded?Complying Development Land identified by an environmental planning instrument including within a: • Foreshore scenic protection area • Protected area • Scenic area • Scenic preservation area • Scenic protection area • Special area

  26. Exempt Development Code • Development that: • Has minimal environmental impact • Does not require planning approval if it meets • defined criteria • Is not on environmentally sensitive land • Meets deemed-to satisfy BCA requirements • Meets manufacturer’s specifications • Other approvals

  27. Examples of Exempt Development

  28. Single and two storey detached dwelling houses on lots 450m2 or greater Alterations and additions Ancillary development General Housing Code (Complying Development)

  29. Does the site meet the lot requirements for complying development? Is the development permissible in the zone? What is the lot size? Is the site sewered? Is the lot a battle axe block? Does the proposed development include a basement? Does the lot have access to a public road? Site requirements

  30. Where does it apply?

  31. The Codes SEPP outlines the zones where complying development for single and two storey dwelling houses is permissible The Codes SEPP relies on the land use zones established under the Standard Instrument – Principal Local Environmental Plan Based on information from councils, the Department is currently compiling a list of equivalent zones for all local government areas Tables listing the equivalent zones, by local government area, will be available on the Department of Planning website from 27 February 2009 Equivalent zones

  32. Name land Permitted land uses use zone R1 Variety of residential housing types R2 Primary dwelling houses R3 Mix of dwelling houses and multi dwelling housing R4 Primarily residential flat buildings R5 Dwelling houses on large lots in a rural setting RU1 Primarily agriculture RU2 Compatible rural land uses including extensive agriculture RU3 Forestry land uses RU4 Compatible rural land uses incl. primary industry RU5 Rural village Equivalent zones

  33. Planning Certificate (previously known as Complying Development Requirement Certificate) • A Planning Certificate can be generated by a council • Identifies if complying development is permissible on a lot • It is not mandatory to have a Planning Certificate prior to issuing a CDC
