How DAs are assessed

How DAs are assessed

What we must consider

To make a determination on a development application (DA) the City of Sydney takes into account such matters as:

City planning officers determine the majority of DAs under delegated authority of Council. DAs for significant development  are determined by the Local Planning Panel, or in the case of development costing over $50 million, applications are determined by the Central Sydney Planning Committee.

Integrated development

This is development that requires the approval of another authority, such as Roads and Maritime Services. In such cases, we must refer the DA to the relevant authority to seek its approval. DAs for integrated development must include an extra set of drawings, and a heritage impact statement, if applicable.

Modifications and appeals

There are several options available if you need to modify a development consent or if you are not satisfied with a DA determination.
