What is a Complying
Development Certificate?

The Complying Development Certificate (CDC) is a fast-tracked approval that does not require a development application at your local council.

By utilising the Low-Rise Housing Diversity Code and the Subdivision Code, developers and homeowners can use CDCs for the development and subdivision of a wide range of building types, such as Dual Occupancies, Terraces, Manor Houses, Residential Flat buildings and Industrial/Commercial Developments.

Landcert's Subdivision and Strata certifiers can complete the entire approval process privately to avoid unnecessary delays through the Council development application approval process.

The dedicated, experienced and friendly Subdivision Certifiers at Landcert make sure you are aware of the steps in the process and any requirements you may need to address - well before the registration of your lots to ensure you are in the best position to fast-track your development.

Give our team of Subdivision Certifiers at Landcert a call to see how we can assist you with your development goals.
