What is a Landscape DA and why do I need one?

A Landscape DA plan is Landscape documentation that is submitted to Council or developers for approval. It provides information to the Council or developer that states a case that the proposed development will be in accordance with all relevant environmental legislation. It is required to ensure the minimum requirements of energy efficiency are met and the minimum requirements of Landscapes are met.


You will require either one of the following for submission;

  • Landscape Plans for Council Approval

  • Landscape Plan for Developer Approval (Design review panels)

  • Landscape Plans for complying Development Certificate (CDC)

You will need a Landscape Plan as part of the development approval process, the plan is compulsory so your development can be approved, move forward in the construction phrase and onto completion.
