Council and the NSW Government have a variety of electronic planning services available which provides you with a fast and convenient way to access planning and development information 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
DA tracking tool
The DA tracking tool allows online tracking of Development Applications and Construction Certificates, and contains a summary of the key milestones in the application process.
Electronic Housing Code
The Electronic Housing Code offers a fast, easy way to get approval for certain types of development, including renovations and additions.
The Code allows you to lodge Complying Development Applications online. A complying development is a straightforward residential development that meets specific criteria and can be determined by councils without the need for a full Development Application. This includes renovations, extensions, first floor additions and garages.
Applications are assessed under the NSW Housing Code for lots that are 200 m2 and above.
You can also find out changes you can make that do not need planning approval, which are known as exempt development.
The property enquirer allows you to determine the types of development that can be undertaken on your property, and provides information about the things you have to consider when planning your development such as bushfire and flooding risks.
