JDAP Application Requirements

The JDAP determines two types of applications:


MANDATORY

If your application is for a development with an estimated cost of $7 million or more, it is mandatory for your application to be referred to the JDAP.  The only exceptions are if your proposed development is exempt from requiring JDAP determination.  The exempt development are:

  • applications for a single house with any associated carport, patio, outbuilding and incidental development;
  • applications for less than 10 grouped dwellings and any associated carport, patio, outbuilding and incidental development; and
  • applications for less than 10 multiple dwellings and any associated carport, patio, outbuilding and incidental development.

OPTIONAL

If your application is for a development with an estimated cost of between $3 million and $7 million, you have the ability to ‘opt-in’ and have your application referred to the JDAP.  The above exempt development are also applicable in this instance.


If your application is to be referred to the JDAP, an application form and fee is required in additional to the application form and fee for the Shire.  The application forms and fees are available from the DAP’s website or can be downloaded below:
