Part 6 Division 8 Clause 93
93   Fire safety and other considerations
(cf clause 66A of EP&A Regulation 1994)
(1)  This clause applies to a development application for a change of building use for an existing building, or the use of an existing building as a place of public entertainment, where the applicant does not seek the rebuilding, alteration, enlargement or extension of a building.
(2)  In determining the development application, the consent authority is to take into consideration whether the fire protection and structural capacity of the building will be appropriate to the building’s proposed use.
(3)  Consent to the change of building use sought by a development application to which this clause applies must not be granted unless the consent authority is satisfied that the building complies (or will, when completed, comply) with such of the Category 1 fire safety provisions as are applicable to the building’s proposed use.
Note.
 The obligation to comply with the Category 1 fire safety provisions may require building work to be carried out even though none is proposed or required in relation to the relevant development consent.
(4)  Subclause (3) does not apply to the extent to which an exemption is in force under clause 187 or 188, subject to the terms of any condition or requirement referred to in clause 187 (6) or 188 (4).
(5)  The matters prescribed by this clause are prescribed for the purposes of section 79C (1) (a) (iv) of the Act.
