Application Information Packs

Application Information Packs

From 1 July 2021 all development applications must be lodged via the NSW Planning Portal (ePlanning services).

The below information packs are designed to help you understand the development application process and prepare your application.

Council wants to process your Development Application in a timely and efficient manner. We can only do this when a well-prepared application, with the correct supporting information, is submitted. By clicking on the development links below you can download a development application pack for the type of development you’re proposing.

Each pack contains:

  • a guide to the development approval process;
  • application forms; and
  • a list of supporting information to be submitted with your application.

Council has prepared the following Development Application Packs
