A significant part of the challenge in a successful civil engineering project is knowing and understanding the statutory requirements.
When you develop land in Queensland, for example, whether it’s;
- Splitting one lot into two
- Constructing townhouses
- Building a new industrial shed
- Or undertaking a 200 lot subdivision,
You need to understand your Development Application (DA) requirements and what that means. It’s not just simply a case of filling out a form and gaining approval. Firstly you need to determine what sort of approval you need. And secondly you need to know what the implications of that are. Navigating the local planning scheme, understanding how it relates to the Sustainable Planning Act (SPA) and the State Planning Policy is important. Then you know how much, or how little, engineering documentation and design you need to include in your development application.It is crucial to develop both appropriate economic designs and communicate effectively with your Council to allow for timely approval and certification.
Therefore, understanding government regulations and producing appropriate documentation for your Development Application is paramount with development and civil engineering.
