From the past to the present
The City of Sydney pursues a sensitive and balanced approach to development that protects residential amenity and the environment, preserves heritage and provides clarity for developers.
Development applications (DAs) and footway usage applications (FAs) are placed on public exhibition before they are determined by the City. You can locate most DAs or FAs by using our online search listing or the interactive map.
