*Please note: Further fees may be applicable at the time of lodgement (e.g. Long Service Levy) and following determination (Development Contributions). All fees are subject to change each financial year and with any changes in legislation.  If you are planning to apply for a Construction Certificate (CC) with CN or Appoint CN as Principal Certifier (PC) for your development, you may be eligible for a 20% discount on some CC and PC fees, if lodged prior to DA approval.


This is an estimate of fees only, based on the information you have entered in the calculator. Fees are subject to change and will be confirmed by CN at the time of lodgement. CN may determine further fees are applicable while your application is under assessment. Please refer to CN's Fees and Charges for further information.
