If your application has been approved by Council you will receive a development consent, which will be either unconditional or subject to conditions. Conditions are imposed by Council in accordance with Section 4.17 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979. Conditions are imposed by Council to ensure that development is acceptable and minimises and mitigates impacts to the environment and community.
A development consent is a legal document and the development approved under the development consent must be constructed and operated in accordance with the requirements of the conditions.
It is important that you carefully read the development consent and understand its requirements. Some conditions require you to take certain steps and provide certain information at key stages of the process such as prior to the issue of a construction certificate.
