The number of new homes approved in Melbourne this financial year is double that of any other capital city.
LOCAL government is catching up with the digital age - applications under the housing code can now be lodged online with 10 councils.
Complying developments under the housing code do not require a full application and must be processed within 10 days. Online lodgment is restricted to complying houses and additions on lots more than 200 square metres.
The pilot scheme for the Electronic Housing Code will involve up to 35 councils and already covers 10, including Bankstown, Blacktown, The Hills, Rockdale, Shellharbour and Sutherland councils - and soon, Liverpool.
