A building development approval for building work is required before starting construction on most types of domestic building work. These approvals are also known as building permits or building approvals.
Building certifiers are responsible for assessing whether proposed building work complies with all relevant provisions of the Building Act 1975, Building Code of Australia, Queensland Development Codes and relevant Australian Standards.
Some aspects of domestic building work such as the maximum height, setback or character of a building may be controlled under a council planning scheme and a planning permit may be required from council. This is assessed and determined on lodgement of the building application.
