From 1 July 2021, applications such as development applications and post-consent certificates must be lodged via the NSW Government's Planning Portal. From 1 July 2021 the NSW Planning Portal is the only way you can lodge these applications.
The construction process
Find out about the construction approval and inspection processes, and appointing Council as your principal certifier if you continue to the construction stage.
This type of approval combines the functions of a Development Application and a Construction Certificate for development that meets relevant standards under State planning policies.
Once you have a Construction Certificate, and before you start any works, you need to appoint a principal certifier who will carry out your inspections at each required stage of construction.
