Prepare your Development Application

To lodge a Development Application, you must complete and submit a Development Application Form.

Please note: if your application is for a property in the Hurstville, Mortdale or Peakhurst Wards, we will only accept electronic applications.


A full schedule of Council fees and charges can be viewed online. In addition to the Development Application fee, further costs may include a neighbour notification or advertising fee, an archiving fee and a fee to place a Development Application notice on site.

Please contact us for further information on fees and charges.
