The Development Application Process

Getting Started

UPQ has the ability to help anyone thinking or wanting to undertake development. If you already own property and want to start a project, ask us for a quick quote (FREE). If you are looking to purchase a property (or multiple) please contact us to find out our nominal fee for these investigative works.


Once UPQ have been engaged, work starts straight away. If necessary we will obtain comparative quotes for architects, engineering and/or landscaping services and hire these consultants on your behalf. For RiskSMART projects we generally require 2 business days to prepare documentation for lodgement with your local Council.

Application Process

UPQ aims to provide suitable updates throughout the application process. We will seek feedback from assessment managers so you know what is happening with your project. If you are new to the development assessment process, we will provide information on how the system works and statutory timeframes.


Upon approval of an application, UPQ will review all documentation as issued by your local Council and provide advice. UPQ is also happy to say that for every completed project, a donation is made to Bushland Heritage Australia.
