Building and Development
Most developments require two things before construction can commence – development approval and a construction certificate. The development approval process assesses whether or not a proposal of a basic design is appropriate for a given location. A construction certificate can approve a specific design in accordance with that development approval including the type of construction and the materials to be used.
Development Control Plan
The Maitland DCP contains detailed guidelines and planning controls applying to all development within the Maitland LGA.
Manual of Engineering Standards
The Manual of Engineering Standards are the engineering guidelines and drawings for major subdivision design and construction, and for individual development sites in the Maitland LGA.
