Why do you need a Council Cost Report Prepared by a Quantity Surveyor?

Securing approval for the development application (DA) from the Council stands as a crucial initial step in most new construction projects. This process involves compiling a vast array of essential documents and reports imperative for approval. Among these requirements, the Council may mandate a certified Quantity Surveyor (QS) to draft the Council Cost Report. If your project’s expected cost exceeds the council-defined threshold (typically ranging between $500,000 and $3,000,000), their requirement for a QS involvement arises to validate construction expenses in the report. The primary aim of this report is to aid the council in determining the Section 7.12/7.11 (formerly Section 94/94A) Contribution, which developers must remit after DA submission.

The cost estimation must comply with the guidelines outlined in section 25J of the EPAA 1979. It requires compilation by a registered Quantity Surveyor, recognized as a member of the Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (AIQS). Additionally, it should align precisely with the format and specifications specified by the council. Leveraging our expertise as registered Quantity Surveyors, we specialize in creating Council Cost Reports, offering unmatched insights to ensure cost-effectiveness aligned with developers’ needs.
