Council’s pre-lodgement service provides a meeting with relevant Council technical officers to discuss the proposed development and provide preliminary advice on planning matters associated with properties and development proposals before you start work on your Development Application (DA).

One of the advantages of attending a pre-lodgement meeting in the early stages of preparing a DA is that issues can be identified and information can be provided to Council to address these issues, which means a faster approval for you.

You can request a pre-lodgement meeting by completing the Pre-Lodgement Booking Form on the Forms page.

Use the NSW Planning Portal from 1 July 2021

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.
