Approval Timeframe

The ARC shall endeavour to review your application within fifteen (15) working days of receipt of the application.


Following the ARC's review of an application the ARC will, within five (5) days after the review, confirm in writing that the preliminary design is acceptable or advise you on items which require further consideration.


You must have full ARC approval for your home or any improvement before lodging any applications to Council or a private certifier for building approvals.


Please note the responsibility in relation to seeking and obtaining the approval of the Sunshine Coast Regional Council (or any other statutory authority) for the proposed plans and specifications for a Lot rests solely with the owner/s of the Lot, notwithstanding that such plans and specifications may have been approved by the ARC with respect to this Architectural and Landscape Code.


The approval process detailed in the Architectural and Landscape Code is additional to any State or Council building or planning approval requirements and no approval granted by the ARC may be interpreted as confirming or implying that plans will be approved by or on behalf of any government authority.
