Project Status: When you need to do this
What you need to do
Prepare your application
A review application should include:
- plans and other information relevant to the appeal
- owners consent
- a disclosure statement, if relevant.
All documents must comply with our digital requirements.
Lodge your review application
All review applications must be made through the NSW Planning Portal.
We will not accept applications by email, in person or by post.
Before you start
There are deadlines for appeal applications to be made and determined from the date of the original decision:
- Review of a development application decision: We must determine within 6 months. It’s recommended you lodge the application within 4 months to allow time for the determination to be made.
- Review of a modification decision: Application must be lodged within 28 days.
We recommend review applications be lodged as soon as possible to allow a determination to be made in time.
Review applications don’t apply to all types of determinations
Review applications don’t apply to complying development, designated development, integrated development or a determination made about Crown land applications.
If your development application has been rejected you can lodge a request for the rejection to be reviewed.
The review will be conducted by a planner.
You must apply for the review within 14 days of receiving the rejected application notice.
If you have any questions about the review process, please contact the planner listed on your notice of determination.
Or you can contact us and make an appointment to speak to a duty planner about your proposed development.
