Development Without Approval

Development Without Approval is known as Exempt.

Exempt Development has minimal impact on the environment and does not need approval. Examples of Exempt Development include pergolas, cubby houses, small outbuildings and proposals to change the use of buildings in business or light development zones within the city.

Find out if your property is eligible

The Electronic Housing Code allows you to investigate whether your proposed development can be approved as exempt from approval or can be approved as complying under the NSW General Housing Code.

If your proposal is defined as Exempt or Complying Development, you may not have to submit a Development Approval. However, there are general exclusions and requirements to be met before your proposal can be defined as Exempt or Complying, which can be found by using the preceding link.
