Dual Occupancy and Secondary Dwelling Developments Checklist

From 1 January 2021, all development applications and the majority of post consent certificates must be submitted through the NSW Planning Portal. Find out more about E-Planning with City of Newcastle (CN).

This document summarises the submission requirements for applications for dual occupancies and/or secondary dwellings and consists of two parts:

  • Part One contains the submission requirements for a Development Application (DA).
  • Part Two contains the submission requirements for a Construction Certificate (CC)

Nothing in this checklist precludes CN from requesting additional information, where CN is of the opinion that the information will assist in the assessment of an application. All plans should be drawn to scale, in ink, on unlined paper and coloured to distinguish new work from existing structures.
