Episode: 6 – CDC & DA Application
When you are looking to build a new home, you are faced with two different application processes:
But what are these application processes? What is the difference? And which one is the right one for my new home?
A Development Application, otherwise known as DA, is an application made to your local council. It allows you to carry out a development. Depending on the type of development proposed, the application may require information about what the development will look like when complete, the materials to be used and any impact the proposed development may have in the surrounding environment.
The requirements for a DA will change between the local councils of New South Wales. Although there may be some similar requirements, all the individual local councils will have their own original specific requirements.
Complying Development Certificate
A Complying Development Certificate, otherwise known as CDC, has been in place in New South Wales since 1998. This construction approval part was developed to ensure low impact and low risk developments, do not have to go through the local councils. Thus, saving time and money.
The requirements for CDC will apply the same across the state of New South Wales.
So, when choosing between CDC and DA, be sure to find out what the local councils you find and the requirements for them.
If you are unsure of which one is right for you, then don’t worry because there are builders out there. And the one that you choose will definitely be out there to help you choosing whether to go to CDC or DA.
If you find that helpful, please like and share. In the comments below, I would love to hear your thoughts or either which one you chose when building your own home.
