Council is able to provide you with a fee estimate for your Development Application, Construction Certificate or Complying Development Certificate.
Before you request a fee estimation, you need to understand the following:
DA fees are calculated by having regard to, among other things, the estimated cost of development based on the current market value.
It is recommended that:
New South Wales Parliament place a levy on building and construction work costing $25,000 and above (inclusive of GST) in New South Wales. This levy is paid into a fund administered by the Long Service Corporation, where the Corporation makes long service payments to building and construction workers.
Payment of this levy is required prior to the issue of the Construction Certificate approval, and allows building work to proceed.
The current levy rate is 0.5% of the value of the building and construction works costing $25,000 or more (inclusive of GST).
You are able to include this payment within your fee estimation or pay directly to the Long Service Levy Board.

If your application requires referral to another agency, you can refer the application directly to the agency on the NSW Planning Portal when you lodge your application. Alternatively, if Council assess your development application and determine integrated referrals are required, we will contact you and let you know.
Integrated Development Fees for each individual agency referral are as follows:
