Public domain works
Works in public areas
Approval is required to carry out works on land that is owned or managed by the City of Sydney and land that will be dedicated to the City.
This includes work on roads, drainage, footpaths, landscaping and other public spaces, referred to as the public domain.
When the City approves a development application (DA) for public domain works, certain conditions may be imposed.
Public domain works may also be associated with a planning agreement. These works are separate to those that may be required under a development consent.
These cover all other works in public areas that are not associated with a DA or planning agreement.
