One of the common questions that I've always been asked about from many potential shop owners is :
"Do I need a DA for a shop design & fitout?"
There is no one short answer to this question.
Whilst you are planning to start a retail store in Sydney, choosing a correct location is very critical to help determine whether a DA is required.
Things to consider:
1. Whether it is within a heritage listed location
2. Is it within a shopping centre such as Wesfield
3. Is it a change of use of the location
4. Is the premise permissble for your proposal
5. How big is the premise?
Generally a new store can be done through CDC, a complying development certificate, however as each location is different, it is always best to discuss with your retail store interior design and fitout specialist in Sydney before you lock yourself into a fixed contract.
