Before lodging plans with council a BASIX assessment will need to be completed.
Where can I complete a BASIX assessment?
BASIX assessments are conducted online using the BASIX assessment tool which is accessible from the BASIX website.
How does the assessment work?
The BASIX assessment will measure your proposed development for sustainability against BASIX targets that are based on the NSW home benchmark average.
Once your design has complied with BASIX a BASIX certificate can be printed and attached to your development application for submission to council or certifying authority.
If your proposed design does not comply with BASIX due to conflicts with heritage controls or because it uses a new technology not recognised by BASIX, an alternative assessment can be requested.
