Development Applications

Electonic Lodgement of Development Applications

From 1 May 2017 when lodging a Development Application with Georges River Council customers will be required to provide all documentation in digital PDF form on USB for upload to Council’s electronic document management system.

This change to lodgement requirements is part of Council’s ongoing commitment to reducing red tape and will relate to all plans, specifications and supporting documentation for development applications, Section 96 modifications and Reviews of Determination.

At the end of the process, when a decision is made, the customer will receive their USB containing the Notice of Determination and the electronically stamped plans.

Further information is available on the Electronic Lodgement of Development Application Fact Sheet which should be read in conjunction with the information contained in the Development Application Form.
