The fees for lodging a development application are established by Parliament and are statutory fees. The fees you will pay vary, depending on the type of development and the total cost of the project. A lodgement fee of $61.00 is required to lodge the application with Council, and Council staff will assist you with any other fees required.
Please be aware that you may also need to pay a CITB Levy, which is a State Government Levy. The applicant needs to pay this Levy before the Council issues development approval if the application has a value exceeding $15,000.
Please contact Council's Development Staff for further information.
