Development applications

Development applications (DAs) are formal requests for permission to carry out a development.

'Development' is defined under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 as:

  • The use of land
  • The subdivision of land
  • The erection of a building
  • The carrying out of work
  • Demolition
  • Any other matter controlled by an environmental planning instrument

All development – except for those listed as exempt or complying development – requires a DA to be lodged and approved by Council before you begin work.
