Development Applications

Recent Updates to the Development Application Process

Coming soon – Lodge your Development Application (DA) online.
From 15 June 2020, all Development Applications must be lodged online through the NSW Planning Portal. The benefit of online lodgement is that you can manage your Development Application in your own time that is convenient to you and in your own home. Due to the current situation with respect to COVID 19, all communication with Council can be managed through the Planning Portal.
This change applies to:

  • Development Applications
  • Applications to Modify Consents (s4.55 applications)
  • Review of Determination (s8.2 applications)

From 15 July 2020, Development Applications can only be accepted via the NSW Planning Portal, as mandated by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment. Additional assistance will be available at our Customer Service Centre for customers wishing to lodge applications through the NSW Planning Portal once the current situation with respect to COVID 19 is resolved however, in the meantime please contact our Duty Planner on 9330 6400 or refer to our Online DA Lodgement web link.
Applications for Building Information Certificates and Privately Issued Certificates are to be sent via email to or to  PO Box 205, Hurstville BC NSW 1481.
For more information, please refer to our Development Application Guide or contact our Duty Planner on 9330 6400.
