If your proposed development complies with the requirements of the following environmental planning instruments you may be able to obtain a Complying Development Certificate (CDC) within 10 days from Council
or an accredited private certifier:
Complying development under the CodeSEPP can be undertaken on low risk bushfire prone land where relevant development standards for bushfire prone land and all other development standards have been met. Applications for CDC for development on bushfire prone land are required to be accompanied by a BAL certificate verifying that the proposed development will not be exposed to a Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) in excess of 29.
BAL certificates can be obtained from Council or an suitably qualified consultant approved by the Rural Fire Service (new window)
