building a Wisdom Majestic in North Kellyville

Plans and CDC



Last Tuesday we received our updated CDC plans from Wisdom. Unfortunately there were a few errors in them but today we received the corrected plans. I have updated the House Plans section in my header bar with these and the elevations as well but for now here they are in all their glory:



Now if you’ve been following they mightn’t look any different to the old ones so here’s where the big difference lies:


Downstairs to the left the ceilings will be 2590mm and everything to the right will be 2930mm.

Let us not forget the rain garden which we should really rename the money pit ….

CDC Stormwater

So now that we have the plans we can apply for water board approval.

Wisdom applied for us whilst the plans were being updated, unfortunately the Sydney Water Quick Check system returned a ‘No records found’. This is normally because it is on a new development and Sydney Water haven’t updated their mapping system yet.

The outcome is we need to pay for an assessment by an Accredited Water Service Coordinator (WSC) and a sewer peg out or Works as Executed plan (WAE) will need to be obtained. Hopefully this will show that our build will not affect any of Sydney Water’s assets and approval will be issued.

We are arranging this ourselves as it would have cost $910 for Wisdom to do the Works as executed plan plus if needed:

  • $300 to survey boundary pegs
  • $365 for an amended engineers plan to show zone of influence

Well, touch wood, our boundary pegs are still in place and the sewer is also pegged out. We will be using the company who our developer contracted the sewer work to so hopefully it will happen quickly.


Once we have that we are able to apply for our CDC approval.

CDC being our Complying Development Certificate not what Google throws out:

  1. The American Center for Disease Control & Prevention or
  2. The Australian Centre for Disease Control.


In case you have forgotten what building CDC is all about I mentioned it previously here:

Having lived here as a child in the 60's I fell in love with Australia and always hoped to one day be able to visit again. So when the opportunity came to move here with my husband's job we decided nothing ventured nothing gained and decided to go for it even though it was hard to leave our family and friends behind in the UK. So now we're here lock, stock and barrel, children and pets too and embarking on building a new home.

  1. Love love love the extra high ceilings! I would have liked a 3m ceiling height downstairs but not the price tag that would undoubtedly come with it! Is it still a 10 day approval process for CDC?

  2. Thanks Sheilzy – glad I’m not painting them!

    I believe it is still 10 days for CDC approval as that is what you are paying for – the quick turn around. However on talking to some of our new neighbours they said there was a bit of a backlog. Perhaps it depends on who your builder uses I certainly hope its 10 days …. or less 🙂

  3. High ceilings will be great. Lucky you!
