Notification of DAs and making a submission

How to make a submission about a DA

Making comments to Council about a DA that is under assessment is known as making a 'submission':

I wasn't notified of a DA but I want to make a submission

DAs are notified in accordance with the notification requirements specified in a Development Control Plan (DCP). The DCP outlines a range of notification methods which determine which properties are formally notified of a DA under assessment. This is based on a combination of factors but generally relates to the type and form of development being proposed. So small scale development usually requires notification to the properties immediately surrounding the subject site while large scale development would be notified to properties within a larger radius of the subject site and publicly exhibited in a local newspaper.

You can still make a submission in relation to a DA if you were not formally notified provided the DA is still under assessment and has not been determined. You should contact the council officer responsible for assessing the DA on (02) 9424 0000 and inform them of your intentions to make a submission.

You can view the progress of a DA under assessment and the name of the council assessing officer by following the instructions on how to use DA Tracking further above or contact one of our Customer Service operators on (02) 9424 0000 for assistance.
