The Electronic Housing Code (EHC) project is focused on the development of an online system for the electronic lodgement of complying development applications under the NSW Housing Code for lots 200m2and above. This system will also allow the user to determine if they are able to proceed with their development without further approvals, as an exempt development.
The Electronic Housing Code has been built primarily for local industry professionals, such as project home builders, planners, developers and architects. However it is also able to be used by the local community within the participating local government areas.
This system, launched by the Minister for Planning & Infrastructure on the 28th October 2011, is currently operational in 32 local government areas – Armidale Dumaresq, Ballina, Bankstown, Blacktown, Camden, Campbelltown, City of Ryde, Coffs Harbour, Kogarah, Ku-Ring-Gai, Lake Macquarie, Lismore, Maitland, Mid-Western, Penrith, Pittwater, Port Macquarie-Hastings, Randwick, Rockdale, Shellharbour, Sutherland, Tamworth, The Hills, Tweed Shire, Wagga Wagga, Warringah, Waverley, Willoughby, Wingecarribee, Wollondilly, Wollongong and Wyong Councils. A further 3 Councils are expected to be in operation on the system shortly.
