Council maintains an online public register of development applications which can be used to view the following:

  • Development applications currently on exhibition; or
  • The current status and stage/decision of development applications and other applications, using the search function

Inner West Council was formed in May 2016 by the merger of the former Ashfield, Leichhardt and Marrickville councils.

For the time being, there are separate DA tracking pages for these three former council areas. Council is working to combine these into a single tracking site in the near future.

Development application update

Council is currently experiencing a higher than usual number of Development Applications being lodged for assessment. We are working as hard as we can to manage this increased demand, however there may be a delay in processing your application.

Council is implementing a range of initiatives to address the increased demands for our service in order to provide the best possible service to local residents.

This includes the introduction of a new technology system to allow customers to lodge and track applications electronically and measures to increase the speed and efficiency of our service.

We appreciate your understanding as we work to process your application as quickly as possible.

Thanks for your feedback. We will use this data to improve the content of this page.
