Lodging a Development Application with your Local Council.
Prior to undertaking building or development work, council approval is to be obtained. This is achieved by applying for a development consent or an complying development application. Development consent is obtained once council is satisfied that the proposal satisfies council policies and it does not infringe significantly on the amenity of the immediate area.
