Development Information and Forms

Development Applications are required to be submitted to Council's Health & Development Services for all types of building works.

From January 2014 Development Applications, Construction Certificates and Section 68 applications requiring Councils approval will no longer be accepted and registered unless the application has been first subjected to a pre-lodgement meeting with Councils Development staff.

Appointments are to be prearranged giving a minimum of two days’ notice and can be made by phoning Councils Health and Development section on 02 6847 6600.

On attendance of the arranged meeting the relevant application form must be completed and signed by the owners. All forms are available at the bottom of this page.

Development applications concerning non-building proposals will be discussed at the meeting.

Photocopied signatures or Documents irrelevant to the specific project in support of the application cannot be accepted as Council is bound by Copyright provisions. All documents including generic information must be specific to the application. In general, the required plans and any specifications are to be professionally prepared to a standard that addresses the minimum requirements of Schedule 1 of theEnvironmental Planning and Assessment Regulations 2000.

If necessary, examples of the required plans can be provided at the pre-lodgement meeting.

Fees will be assessed at lodgement and must be paid prior to the application being registered.

By addressing the prerequisites prior to the pre-lodgement meeting the processing times for applications can be expedited and unnecessary delays avoided.

Council appreciates your co-operation in helping to improve processing times.
