A self-assessable development is one which is identified by an assessment manager as not needing a development or compliance permit. This can usually be found in the local planning scheme.
Self-assessable developments must comply with any applicable code/s under relevant legislation or planning schemes.
It is an offence to carry out self-assessable development that contravenes the applicable code/s.
In some circumstances self-assessable development may require approval for building works which can be sought from a building certifier.
