Frequently Asked Questions

What approvals will be required before we can install a manufactured home on site?

All proposals to install a manufactured home in NSW require the lodgement of a Development Application (DA) to Council, as well as an application for a Section 68 approval. A Section 68 approval is issued by Council under the Local Government Act 1993 to assess issues such as the structural integrity and proposed sewage management of manufactured homes, other moveable dwellings, and associated structures. A Construction Certificate is not required to install a manufactured home (but may be required for associated works) following a DA approval. The Section 68 application is completed in lieu of the on-site inspections associated with a Construction Certificate that would ordinarily be carried out during on-site construction. Installing a manufactured home cannot be carried out as Complying Development.
