In Australia, housing is a highly regulated industry, and that means sometimes you are going to have to jump through hoops to get your project off the ground. Anyone looking to develop residential property in Australia must comply with legislation from all levels of government, but mostly from your local council. This is because council is usually required to implement state and federal building regulations at a local level, and in doing so has the authority to develop local policies that relate to development.
Have you ever heard that you need to get a Development Approval (DA) before a Building Approval (BA) can be issued? Do you know what this means? It is common to hear the acronyms DA and BA in the world of planning and building certification, but how do they differ and what do they mean?
Firstly, a DA stands for Development Application/Approval. A Development Application is lodged with council either by you or by your private certifier to ensure your proposed building work meets all necessary planning requirements such as the location of your building work on your property, the land surrounding it and overlays such as flood hazards and hill slopes.
A BA is a Building Application/Approval also known as a Building Permit. The Building Application consists of the paperwork you submit to your private certifier with the intention of receiving a Building Approval. To get a BA you must do the work the council requests you to do as a preparation for building.
