DA application for pergola:At Fresh Outdoor, we understand that dealing with council applications for pergolas can be daunting, often mired in a maze of regulations and paperwork. That’s why we’ve dedicated ourselves to simplifying this process for our clients. Our approach involves handling every aspect of the council application in-house, allowing you to focus on what you enjoy most, without the burden of complex paperwork and confusing compliance issues.


ASSESSMENT:Laying the Groundwork

The first step in our process involves a thorough assessment of your property and the proposed pergola project. This crucial phase is governed by the standards set by NSW Planning. We meticulously review every detail to determine if your project requires formal approval. In cases where approval is necessary, our expert compliance officer steps in to decide the best course of action – whether that involves submitting a Development Application (DA) to the local council or pursuing a Complying Development Certificate (CDC) through our trusted private certifier.


PLANNING: Crafting Your Pergola Vision

Post-assessment, our qualified draftsmen get to work on crafting detailed plans for your pergola. These plans are not only tailored to meet your specific needs and preferences but are also designed to align with regulatory standards, ensuring a smoother approval process.

APPLICATION PREPARATION: Setting the Stage for Approval

Once you review and approve the plans, we proceed to prepare and lodge your application. This preparation is a meticulous process where we ensure that every detail aligns with the required standards for either a Complying Development Certificate or a Development Application. The approval timeline can vary, with CDC approvals generally taking about 3-4 weeks, while DA approvals may extend up to 12 weeks.



Upon receiving council approval for your DA, the next step is to obtain the Construction Certificate. We manage this process through our Private Certifier, ensuring all legal requirements are met seamlessly. Once the Construction Certificate is in hand, it signals that we’re ready to commence the on-site work, bringing your pergola project from a well-laid plan to a beautiful reality.
