NSW Legislation Update: Greater CDC flexibility brings more obligations….. On 22nd February 2014, legislative changes were introduced in NSW which have a significant impact on how Complying Development Consent (“CDC”) applications are considered. The changes, on the whole, provide greater flexibility to owners and occupiers in undertaking works under a CDC, but also bring additional obligations intended to promote the active management of fire safety measures within older (pre-1993) commercial and industrial assets. Owners and occupiers therefore need to be aware of these changes, but those who take a proactive approach to the management of their assets and premises need not fear the new legislation Speak with One of our Project or Construction Mangers for more information or if we can assist with any of your upcoming projects.
