The Deputy Premier has approved an extension notice to extend the timeframes for undertaking approved development by six months. This applies under the COVID-19 applicable event notice declared on 29 June 2021.
This extension notice applies to particular development approvals that were in effect on 1 September 2021, or that come into effect between 1 September and 30 September 2021.
This extension notice relates to the following matters:
- Extend the condition time for the completion of a development under a building development approval by six months.
- Extend the currency period and the period required a 'development condition' for a development to be completed by six months.
Where a building development approval was extended as a result of the six-month extension notice given by the Planning Minister in July 2020 and was still in effect on 1 September 2021, this extension applies in addition to the six months already provided.
This extension notice does not revive development approvals that had lapsed before 1 September 2021 or apply to building development approvals for building works to undertake demolition, removal and rebuilding work under section 71 of the Building Act 1975.
Additionally the Deputy Premier has approved an extension to the COVID-19 emergency applicable event period 1/2021 until to 30 April 2022.
- extends the application of current Declared uses (Declared use notice) until 30 April 2022
