Landscaping Design and Approval



Not all landscaping projects require council approval. Some works that are considered minor are exempt, like building a small retaining wall (under 600mm) or the construction of a deck under 25m squared.

But there are different regulations and exceptions that apply in each state, such as heritage-listed properties, conservation areas or bush fire zones. This can make it tricky to know what is required unless you have expert advice.


Exempt Works

Some smaller landscaping projects are considered exempt from Council approval. These can include:

  • A small deck (under 25m2)
  • Retaining walls (under 600mm)
  • New plants or turf

It’s important to remember that if your landscaping works are not in fact exempt, they are deemed ‘unauthorised’ and Council can request that you remove the unauthorised works!

The Corona Team will provide expert advice to ensure your landscaping has the approval when and if it’s needed.

Complying Development

If your landscaping project is likely to impact the community, you will need to demonstrate that you are complying with your local council’s rules. Your project may need a Complying Development Certificate (CDC).

A CDC is a much quicker to way to get council approval (faster than a DA) but can still take a couple of weeks. A CDC is considered a ‘complete’ approval, which means that you don’t have to apply for a Construction Certificate (CC) before you start. A CDC can be provided by your local council or a Private Certifying Authority (PCA).

A Complying Development Certificate may be needed for:

  • A deck over 25m2
  • Retaining walls over 600mm
  • A swimming pool
  • Removal of a tree

The Corona Projects team can let you know of your local Council’s rules and help secure the approval you need.

Development Approval

If you are making significant structural changes to your property or when you want to do work outside of the CDC guidelines. Your project may need Council Development Application (DA) approval.

This will take time (between 2-12 months) depending on the size and complexity of the application

Once you have your DA council approval, you still have to apply for a Construction Certificate (CC). This ensures the works are compliant with the approved DA and any specific conditions that were put on the DA (like protecting certain tree’s). A CC can be provided by your local council or a Private Certifying Authority (PCA).

Corona Projects will secure DA approval with your local council using their local knowledge and on the ground team.
