The Committee will assess your design to ensure it is in accordance with part 7 of the CMS


In order to assess your design we will need to following items:


  • Site plan

  • Building location (on site plan) showing the building envelope

  • Water tank location (

  • Garbage storage area location

  • North, South, East and West Elevations

  • Plan showing proposed location of effluent disposal of system

  • List of external materials, finishes and colours


Assessment process:

All lot owners must first gain approval through the Executive Committee before they can lodge their

plans with Council for Development approval. The committee has established a Building

Applications sub-committee to review applications and make a recommendation to the Executive

Committee. A letter of approval from the Committee will need to accompany your application to

Council prior to Council accepting your Development application.

The Committee review process will be completed within 30 days of receipt of all required

documents and the applicant notified.



Once an approval notice has been issued by the committee it is valid for 12 months and cannot be

submitted to Council after this time, an assessment revision must be undertaken by the committee

and a new approval notice issued after this time.

Please ensure you are familiar with the CMS and you have considered by-laws 2 and 3 .  A building and design guideline has also been prepared to be used as a guide only. Please refer to links in the building tab to find  relevant documents


Following is a list of approvals granted by the committee. This indicates to the lot owner that their design complies with the CMS and an approval letter has been sent to Singleton Council which is required for lot owners to submit their Development Application with Singleton Council.
