Development Application Cost Plans

What is a Development Application Cost Plan?

A Development Application Cost Plan report (sometimes known as a Cost Summary Report or a Detailed Cost Report) is a report that is submitted to local Council as part of the Development Application process and is used by local Council to help them establish what fees and levies will be charged to the development applicant/property owner.

Local Councils rely on professional quantity surveyors to provide them with a genuine cost of the development proposed based on industry recognised and market prices including the cost of materials, labour, plant and equipment, demolition, consultant fees and GST, as set out in clause 255 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000.
