Council Approvals and Home Renovations

If you plan to renovate your home and make structural changes that affect its size or shape, obtaining formal approval is necessary.

With our extensive experience obtaining Development Applications (DA) and Complying Development Certificates (CDC) approvals in NSW, we have an in-depth understanding of local council regulations. In addition, we specialise in designing homes for Bushfires and Heritage areas.

Choosing the appropriate approval system for your renovation project requires an understanding of the rules and regulations. Our team can guide you through the process and help you determine the most beneficial approach for your project.


Frequently Asked Questions

How much will the design cost?2023-05-09T06:28:51+00:00

The great thing about how we structure our quote is that you can commit as much as you want. Each job will vary in cost due to many factors; however, the cost of each stage will be clearly outlined in the quote.

How long will the project take to complete?2023-05-09T06:29:29+00:00

Generally, each stage takes about 3 weeks to complete; however, depending on the design, it can be shorter. One thing to note is that the council can take up to 6 months to get back to us.

How do you ensure that the project stays within budget?2023-05-09T06:30:08+00:00

We work very closely with many builders who continually update us on current prices. We understand that all designs will also have different grade finishes, materials and will tailor the design to the budget.

Can I have a basement?2023-05-09T06:30:52+00:00

Short answer yes. But this will be very design dependent and vary from council to council. One thing to consider is if you will be using the basement for car parking; if so, it may be more difficult to get this approved through the council.

What is the maximum size I can build my house?2023-05-09T06:32:20+00:00

This will depend on the size of your lot. Typically councils have a restriction on the size of the house as a percentage of the lot. Likewise, this will be the case for CDC, with the maximum internal area being 400m2 for lots 1000m2 or over.

Can I remove trees on my site?2023-05-09T06:33:29+00:00

To remove any tree, you will need approval from either council or a certifier. If you have a large, native, and healthy tree, it is very unlikely that it would be approved for removal.

How many revisions do I get?2023-05-09T06:35:34+00:00

With Fyffe Design, you typically get 3 in the concept stage, 2 in the design development stage and 2 in working drawings. These revisions are specific and limited to each stage.
