Streamlined residential development

Types of development that are valid for streamlined processes

The residential development code

The residential development code was introduced in 2009 to create faster, cheaper and simpler building approvals for home construction and renovation. It was established under Schedule 4 of the Development Regulations 2008.

The code sets out tick-box assessment criteria known as performance controls to cover issues such as:

  • location
  • height
  • setback
  • site coverage.

If a development proposal meets all the criteria, it will be approved within 10 days.

Valid types of development

An approval can be obtained for the following:

  • carport
  • veranda
  • garage
  • single storey dwelling addition
  • other minor structures.

Some new dwellings may be assessed against the Residential Development Code. Check your council's map of areas where streamlined processes apply.
