Before you can make changes to a building, you may need to a lodge a Development Application.

A Development Application (DA) is a formal request for consent to carry out development. This type of development approval is the most common way of obtaining development consent in NSW.

In this section of the website you will find all the information required to lodge a DA.

Accessing Development Applications

Development applications and associated documents are ‘open access’ documents under the Government Information (Public Access) Regulation 2009, with the exception of:

  • the plans and specifications for any residential parts of a proposed building, other than plans that merely show its height and its external configuration in relation to the site on which it is proposed to be erected; or
  • commercial information, if the information would be likely to prejudice the commercial position of the person who supplied it or to reveal a trade secret.

Development applications currently on public exhibition are notified below.

If you are seeking copies of development applications which are no longer on exhibition, please contact Council on 9748 9999.  Upon request, Council will make documents available for inspection, copying or where possible, publication via the website.

Copy of documents is provided by Strathfield Council for information purposes only, as required by relevant legislation.  Copyright laws still apply to these documents.  Some documents may been amended (redacted) in order to protect personal information such as phone numbers, fax numbers and signatures.
