Council's DA Fee Calculator is updated each year to reflect changes in the fees and charges.
How to use the DA Fee
Decide if your development fits Complying Development criteria. If it doesn’t or if in doubt select one of the applicable Development Application options:
Dwelling or other development $100,000 or more
Change of use
Subdivision (requires additional answer regarding number of lots created)
Construction Certificate – answer yes if your development involves construction and is not complying development and not a subdivision.
Occupation/Final Certificate – answer yes for all types of development.
Sewer or Septic? If you are making a new connection or altering an existing connection to sewer then answer yes. If you are in a rural area and an on-site sewerage management system (e.g.
septic tank) is involved in the development say yes to the septic tank question.
Advertising and notification? This depends on the nature of the development. Enquire with Council regarding your development or as a default say yes to neighbour notification and in cases where the development is other than a residential development say yes also to advertising.
The DA Fee Calculator is to be used as a guide only. Some development types (e.g. Advertised Development, Integrated and Designated Development) require additional fees.
