Exempt Developments

Exempt Developments do not require Forms or Applications

Exempt development does not require the submission of a development application to Council, subject to the development complying with pre-determined criteria established in the Schedule of Exempt Development.

It is the applicant/owner's responsibility to demonstrate that works are "exempt development" if challenged to do so. If in doubt, the owner should seek written advice of the Council, or alternatively lodge a Development Application. Stiff penalties may apply to works that are mistakenly carried out as "exempt development".
