 Our planners provide you with straight forward advice and focus on achieving outcomes for approval. A highly personalised service is provided to ensure your development is issued with approval, fast-tracked.

Our Brisbane RiskSMART team will add value to your project, securing all necessary approvals for both code and impact assessable developments to allow it to commence. We are currently accredited for the following development categories:

  • New houses and extensions in a Demolition Control Precinct,        
  • Subdivisions (Ten or less lots)
  • Multi-Unit Dwellings (Ten or less lots)
  • Industrial in an industry area,
  • Small extensions in a shopping centre
  • Single unit dwellings (ten or less units)


 Fast Track Check

Just because your development falls into one of the above categories does not automatically mean it qualifies as a RiskSmart Development Application. At AA Fast DA Approvals, the three main milestones include pre-application check, development assessment report completed, and development application lodged with Council including the recommended conditions package.

In the pre-application check stage the preliminary application is assessed against all relevant codes and policies and if necessary discussions with Councils RiskSmart team.

Complete a fast check below to see if your project qualifies.

We will be in contact with you within 24 hours to discuss your proposed development and if it qualifies to be assessed as a RiskSmart development application.

For larger development or projects that do not qualify for RiskSMART (DA) please attach your proposal plans or register your details www.theplanningplace.com.au or call us on 07 3257 7833.
