Drafting services in Sydney - is CDC always the better choice for a granny flat development?
Have you ever need help with design drawings in Sydney, particularly,doing a granny flat?
I came across to a lot of potential clients looking to build a granny flat at the back of their properties and always seem to seek CDC over DA. "It's faster" they said, "I hate dealing with the council" are some of the comments we get. Now because everybody is brainwashed with the idea that GRANNY FLAT = CDC, let us unfold the truth here.
Why should I go with CDC not DA/CC?
It is always about comparison, given that the Randwick DCP is much stricter than the SEPP, it is recommended to use CDC.
When should I go with DA/CC instead of CDC?
If you property is located under Randwick council, it is highly recommended to use CDC instead due to a better flexibility compared to the council's regulation.
Are they priced similar?
Yes, CDC and DA/CC charges similar, at the end of the day, there is only very little difference in cost.
Which one takes longer?
DA takes longer than CDC, given that the Council DCP is much stricter than the SEPP, it is recommended to use CDC.
*Note, every council is different and that you should always compare the pros and cons of each council against the SEPP in order to choose what works for you best!
*all comments made are pure personal recommendations based on our experience. Each project will need to be further investigate to ensure the correct procedure is to be selected, Go Design Solutions take no responsbilities for incorrect decisions/approvals.
