All other public works
Works may be proposed in the City of Sydney's public areas that do not need to be associated with a development application or a voluntary planning agreement. These are known as works on the public way applications.
Such proposals are assessed by the City under part 5a of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act and under section 138 of the Roads Act. This requires information to be submitted for approval, similar to the requirements for works required under a DA.
Submissions and approvals
Information about the submission and approval of works on the public way are outlined in the Public Domain Manual (download below).
