ACT

There are two possible lawful requirements for development consent in the ACT: Development Approval (DA) & Building Approval (BA)

For many proposed developments a DA & BA will be required. However, there are projects which may not require a DA and, for minor works a DA & BA may not be necessary.

An accredited building certifirer will determine and advise if a DA is not required. For this to occur the criteria in Schedule 1 of the Planning And Development Regulation 2008 must be satisfied.
