Development and Building checklists
The planning system in New South Wales can at times seem overwhelming and complex, so Council staff have developed some checklists to help you get all the right documentation in order before you lodge an application online.
You can download the checklist by name below.
We’ve also given a brief overview of the application steps involved relating to certificate/application types (such as DA’s or construction certificates) on our certificates and applications page here.
If you have any questions you can contact council staff on 1300 087 004 or via email@example.com. Our staff are here to help!
Estimated cost of works
You'll also find an estimated cost of works document below. This details what matters should be taken into consideration when calculating Development Application (DA) fees.
If you have worked through the checklist for your specific application and have all of the information required for your development, you can lodge your application online at the NSW Planning Portal. A copy of your completed checklist must be uploaded to the portal with all your other documentation.
Applicants must create, or have, an account to lodge an application.
Please find below the checklists for a number of building or development applications you may be submitting via the Planning Portal. These need to be submitted as a supporting document with your application.
Please make sure you save the downloadable PDF checklist to your computer locally so that you can ensure all your notes/checkboxes are saved and the signature field saves correctly.
Waste Management Plan for DA's
A Waste Management Plan is required in order for Council to appropriately assess the Development Application.
