Exempt Development

Exempt Development

Exempt developments are types of development that don't need Council consent. All exempt developments must still meet set requirements such as size, location, use and construction standards. If the State-wide exempt development code covers the same development type listed in a Council exempt development code, then the State-wide code prevails.
