Before preparing a Development Application

Before preparing a DA, you should contact Council's Development Advisory Team or Customer Contact Centre. By consulting with us, you will be able to:

  • Find out whether the proposed development is permissible/allowed 
  • Find out whether a DA is required
  • Check how the City's planning instruments (plans, codes and policies) affect the proposed development
  • Obtain copies of the information necessary to submit a DA, including the DA form and the relevant planning instruments
  • Obtain advice on the required DA fees.
