Development proposals on exhibition and 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.

Please direct all DA related enquiries to the Development Help Desk on 4474 1231.


During the notification period, the community can give feedback about a proposal by making a written submission to Council. The assessing officer will review any submissions and, in some cases, may ask the applicant of the proposal, to consider and respond to the issues raised before the application is determined.

Register of DAs with variations to development standards

Development proposals need to be prepared with reference to development standards in all relevant environmental plans. The relevant plan for Eurobodalla Shire is the Eurobodalla Local Environmental Plan 2012. This plan provides the zoning for each site and sets out key development standards which include building heights and minimum lot sizes.

In order to vary any of these development standards, the applicant's DA needs to address them under Clause 4.6 of the Eurobodalla Local Environmental Plan 2012. This clause gives the applicant the opportunity to demonstrate that the variation to the development standard(s) is justifiable in the specific circumstance.

Below you will find a list of development applications where consent has been granted with a variation to development standard SEPP1 or Clause 4.6, for the period January 2011 to June 2019:
