FORMERLY KNOWN AS 149 CERTIFICATE
A 10.7 Certificate contains information about your property, explaining State Government requirements, plus to learn if there are any issues on the land that may affect the approval process, approval cost and construction cost.
HERE IS A SHORT LIST OF WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
Must be between R1 & R4
If your 10.7 states any of these, you will need Development Approval (DA) from the local council
If your 10.7 certificate states ‘may not’, then a DA is required
If your property is in a Mine Subsidence area, then approval by the Mine Subsidence board is required. This extends the approval process
If your property is in a bushfire zone, then a Bushfire Consultant must be engaged to determine the Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) Rating and a BAL Certificate must be provided. This may affect the cost of construction
if your property falls in a flood zone, this will usually have an impact on the time needed for design and approval, plus result in additional costs during all stages
if you have a Tree Preservation Order on your land, this means that no trees can be pruned or removed without council permit
