Development Application fees to rise in NSW

June 29, 2011

The NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure has issued a reminder that from July 1, 2011, a number of administrative and legislative changes will come into force, including a number of changes made to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation in December that will actually begin from July 1. These include changes to fees charged by local councils for development applications, in line with consumer price index.

They also include the introduction of fees for BASIX certificates issued for new dwellings (such as new single houses, townhouses, apartments and residential flat buildings) beginning on July 1, 2011. The fee for BASIX certificates for alterations and additions (of construction value of $50,000 or more and for pools of 40,000 litres or more) begins on August 1, 2011.
