19th March 2018- New Certificate for Public Use Checklist

A new checklist for Certifcate for Public Use applications has been developed and released onto the QLDC website. This new form needs to be filled in electronically and submitted along with the Form 15 for all CPU applications. The new form can be found under the Commercial Building Application Forms or under the CCC webpage.  

16th February 2018- New LIM and Minor Variation forms

New forms for LIM Application and Minor Variations have been released to the website. Both of these are in editable PDF format to make them simple to fill in.

The wesbite information regarding What is a Building Consent and How to apply have also been updated to provide better clarity around the checking stage of Building Consent applications .

14th September 2017- New Application Forms

The QLDC BCA has been reviewing its application forms, guidance documents and supporting information as part of its focus on continuous improvement. Many of these new documents have now been launched on the website for the public to use. Several of these forms represent a departure from the previous documents so we encourage you to review the documents carefully. All updated documents have been marked as (NEW).

Of special note is the new CS19.3 Residential Processing Checklist. This replaces the old CS4.1R. This new document has been designed to provide a more open and transparent approach to building consent processing. The applicant fills in the same form as that which is used by the Processing Officer so this will ensures that all building code requirements are clearly understood before they submit their application. We encourage you to share this form with your designer to ensure that they have included all required information into their plans and specifications. If they succeed in doing this then this will speed up the efficiency of the processing and reduce the chances of delays due to RFI's.
