DA, or Development Approval, is the document you need, without which you will not be permitted to undertake your development by Brisbane Council. There are many aspects factored into a development approval application, which includes the plans and design for the location in question as well as specific structural data pertinent to the building.

DA approval in Brisbane cannot be granted until consent has been given in terms of the development plan, the building rules and the land division. One or all of these may be relevant to your project.

Planning consent refers to an assessment that takes place to determine the impact the development will have on the area it is proposed for. For example, will new homes be built, is the use of the land that the development is intended for going to change?

Building rules consent is specific to construction and an assessment takes place against the Building Code or Housing Code to determine issues including fire safety, energy efficiency, access for those with disabilities, health and amenity and structural adequacy.  Land division consent is specific to the changing of boundaries between properties.

In essence, if you wish to carry out any of the following you will need development approval:

– Changing the use of a premises

– Building work

– Plumbing or drainage work

– Operational work

– Subdivision
