The NSW Government is undertaking a review of compliance levies charged by councils to create a more certain, consistent and transparent system for funding building compliance.
The new framework aims to ensure councils have the resources necessary to ensure builders are following the rules, while minimising the impact on those who seek to do the right thing.
We are consulting with councils, industry and stakeholders to develop a new compliance levy framework, which will be implemented in stages, from 1 July 2021, to ensure councils have enough time to adapt to the changes.
Included in the framework is a new levy structure for complying development certificates (CDCs) and new provisions for compliance cost notices.
1 July 2021
As at 1 September 2021
As at 1 January 2022
The Department is working with councils and the development industry to achieve a sustainable compliance levy framework that provides transparency and consistency for the sector.
The department will be conducting further consultation with interested councils and industry stakeholders.
