A Construction Certificate is required before the commencement of building work subject to a development consent (except when a Complying Development Certificate has been issued). A Construction Certificate certifies that:
A construction certificate may be issued by Council or by a private accredited certifier.
We are able to process your Construction Certificate application after your development application has been determined. Changes to submitted plans may occur during the assessment process, in response to community consultation and conditions of consent. For this reason, you should lodge your application for a Construction Certificate after your development application has been approved. You will then be able to demonstrate compliance with your development consent and avoid further costs and delays. A construction certificate cannot be issued unless it is consistent with the development consent.
