Complying Development Certificate Checklist

All development applications and the majority of post consent certificates must be submitted through the NSW Planning Portal. Find out more on our Lodging an Application information page.

The State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) – (The Code SEPP) is the principal document outlining the types of permissible complying development.

This document consists of 2 parts:

  • Part One: A Submission Checklist for a Complying Development Certificate under the Code SEPP, that is to be completed and return to the City of Newcastle.
  • Part Two: The standard of application and information to assist in the preparation of an application.
