What is the process when I lodge an application for building approval?
We will request certain information from you, including the mandatory IDAS application forms and architectural plans, in order to complete an assessment of your proposal. The Certifier will be assessing the proposal against the relevant legislations and planning schemes. They will then provide an assessment report on the status of the application, along with detail on what needs to happen next. This could include requests for additional information, lodgement of additional applications or even suggestions for re-design.
When all information has been provided and the Certifier confirms that the design complies with all requirements, the Building Approval will be issued. This will include a Decision Notice, supporting Conditions of Approval and Stamped Approved Plans. It is now that construction can commence on site.
