Similar to the question about the cost of obtaining a development permit, each development project is unique. As a very rough guide however, you should allow three months from lodgment to approval for a code assessable development project, and four months for a project requiring impact assessment. Bundaberg Regional Council has a 'Fast tracking' system for 'low-risk applications'. There are five categories of low-risk developments: some industries (e.g. in Industry Zone), dual occupancies, multi units (up to 10 units), reconfiguring up to 10 lots in a low density residential zone, and rural boundary realignments. Bundaberg Regional Council's website contains more detailed information including a fact sheet.
