Electronic Housing Code

Use the Electronic Housing Code (EHC) to:

Investigate your development options for an individual site
Generate an exempt development report
Prepare your complying development application electronically
Lodge your application electronically
Monitor the progress of your application

What is the Electronic Housing Code?

The Electronic Housing Code (EHC) is an online system for the electronic lodgement of complying development applications under the NSW Housing Code for lots 200m2 and above. This system will also allow the user to determine if they are able to proceed with their development without further approvals, as an exempt development.

Please note, there will still be fees associated with the assessment of your application, and this should be discussed with Blayney Shire Council.

For more information on this project, please view the dedicated project website at www.ehc.nsw.gov.au

What you need to know before using the system for Complying Development

Prior to using the Electronic Housing Code you may find it helpful to have the following information ready:

As each development is different it is difficult to provide an exhaustive listing of required documentation for each scenario. However we have compiled a list of some of the possible documentation you may need to provide, click here to view.

Note, the majority of the Councils using this system will provide you with a checklist of documents that they require either prior to or once you have submitted your application for consideration.

You will require an electronic copy of the associated site plan in order to complete your application. If you are doing this application on behalf of others, you will need a signed owner’s consent form.

You may also find it helpful to view the User Guide. This has been divided into sections. Please click here to be taken to these guides.
