|Exempt & Complying Development Codes|
Exempt development was first introduced in NSW in 1993 for minor forms of development where, subject to satisfying pre-specified standards, there is no need for planning or construction approval to be obtained. In other words, if the development standards are met, the development can be built without needing to be approved by an accredited certifier or local council. Other legislative requirements for approvals, licences, permits and authorities may still apply.
The code provides an easy-to-use framework for exempt development for homeowners. Exempt development typically covers small-scale structures associated with a dwelling such as sheds, pergolas, fences, rainwater tanks and fixed barbecues.
While these structures may be considered relatively minor, if not properly controlled they have the potential to impact adversely on neighbours or streetscapes. The standards within the NSW Housing Code minimise these impacts, by restricting the size and location of these structures.
The Exempt Development criteria are contained within the State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008 (Part 2).
