With JKD, your proposed development, whether its alterations and additions or a new home, could be assessed and approved in as few as 10 days, saving costs and providing certainty in your plans. The NSW Government has developed a state wide assessment system, the NSW Housing Code, which is an alternative to the Development Application process through Council. If the proposed development fits a series of strict controls the assessment can be undertaken by a private certifier (the Principle Certifying Authority). JKD principal Jeff Karskens assisted Planning NSW with the preparation of the Housing Code User Guidelines, so has valuable insight and experience with the fast-tracked approval process.
JKD has several projects currently underway benefiting from the Complying Development assessment process. Contact JKD to discuss if your development can be assessed under the NSW Housing Code.
