Building & Compliance

Before commencing work

Once Development Approval is granted you are permitted to begin works. This must occur within 12 months of the date of the approval.

You are required to notify council at a minimum of 24 hours prior to work commencing.

Customers are also encouraged to contact Council so that a Site Management Meeting can be arranged to discuss the processes of working within the City of Playford. Arranging this meeting assists to ensure a smooth and efficient construction process.

If you are not going to commence works within the 12 month period, please contact Council. A Development Application Extension Form can also be completed and submitted to Council.



Council have a team of officers responsible for inspecting sites to ensure works are undertaken in accordance with the Development Act 1993, Building Code of Australia and appropriate Australian Standards. Officers may, at any time, request access to your site to ensure works are being undertaken in accordance with approved plans.


Completing works

Once your development is complete you are required to notify council. This will allow officers to undertake a final inspection, if necessary. A Builder’s Statement may be required to be submitted to Council at the completion of work.


Certificate of Occupancy

Prior to occupation a condition of the approval may be that a Certificate of Occupancy is required. A Council Officer can issue this certificate if Council has granted the Building Rules Consent.

Please contact Council to arrange for a site inspection to issue to Certificate of Occupancy.
