Development includes building, renovating, demolishing, tree removal, subdividing land, the display of advertising or changing the use of a building or land. If you are considering development, you may need to lodge a Development Application (DA) with Council to seek consent to carry out this development. As part of the application process, Council will assess the likely impacts of your development and ensure that the proposal complies with relevant legislation.

You may also need other formal approvals for certain parts of your development such as the installation of a solid fuel heating appliance, a new stormwater connection, driveway crossing or the installation of a relocatable home, annexe or associated structure on a dwelling site in a caravan park.
