Online Application Lodgement

The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment allows you to submit development applications (DAs) to Council online through the NSW Planning Portal. To submit online you need to register for a Portal account. Once registration is complete
you will fill out an online application form and upload your application

You are required to submit the same documentation with your online application that is required by Council’s DA lodgement checklists. Once submitted your application will be checked by Council staff to ensure it is complete. If your application is incomplete it
will be returned to you through the Portal with details of what is missing.

If your application is complete it will be accepted for lodgement and Council’s Customer Relations team will contact you to arrange payment of the application fees. Applications are not legally lodged with Council until the application fees have been paid in full.

During the assessment of your online application, if Council requires additional information this will be communicated to you through the Portal. All additional information you provide to Council must be submitted through the Portal.

Council encourages you to submit your DAs online though the Portal.

Further information on online applications isavailable on the NSW Planning Portal.
