Council is continuing to monitor the evolving situation with COVID-19. Please see our dedicated webpage for up-to-date information on Council services and advice.

A Development Application commonly referred to as a DA is a formal request for permission to carry out proposed development such as the use of land, subdivision of land, the erection of a building, the carrying out of work or the demolition of a building. You must lodge a DA and have it approved by Council before you begin.

Generally, a DA consists of an application form and plans and drawings of the proposed development.

Please visit the Development section of this website before submitting a development application.

DAs are required so that Council may assess your plans and information, inspect your property and determine whether your proposal is appropriate.
