What is a Development Application?
A DA is commonly referred to as a Development Application. It is a formal request for consent to carry out a proposed development, such as change of use of land, subdivide land, and carry out building landscaping and other works. You must lodge a DA and have it approved by Council before any construction can begin.
Do I need a Development Application Approval from Council?
In most cases yes. If you are planning on developing a piece of land (eg. Subdividing, building townhouses/units/high rise, building an industrial shed/warehouse), it will be required to have Council approve the concept design.
There is a process to follow and in ‘most’ cases, will require engineering input to achieve the DA from Council.
Examples of work that would require a DA include, but are not limited to:
- Engineering Services Report
- Traffic Impact Assessments
- Stormwater Management Plans
- Overland Flow Assessment Report
- Flood Assessment Report
Conceptual design services may also be required at the DA stage. At Civil Perspective we are able to complete the following conceptual design documentation:
- Roadworks and Access Plan/s
- Filling & Excavation (Bulk Earthworks) Plan
- Erosion & Sediment Control Plan
- Stormwater Drainage (including detention/retention details) Plan
- Sewer Reticulation Plan
- Water Reticulation Plan
- Combine Services Plan
For all your residential, commercial and industrial development applications.
We’d love to meet with you and chat about your ideas, hopes and dreams for your new development.
