From 1 July, all homeowners on the Northern Beaches will be required to lodge DAs online via the NSW Planning Portal.  

This follows a mandate by the NSW Government for 42 councils in metropolitan Sydney, Newcastle, Central Coast and Illawarra to use the e-Planning Portal from 1 July 2020.

The Planning Portal is accessible via Council’s website and allows customers to submit development applications from anywhere in real-time. Information and data about applications can also be accessed anywhere and anytime.

Over the last few months, Council has been accepting and processing DAs, complying development certificate and post-commencement certificates via the Planning Portal.

Prior to lodging a development application there are a few steps customers are asked to follow.  This includes completing a development application form and checklist, council application form and owners consent.  All of these documents and instructions are available on Council’s website.

For more information please visit the Planning and Development sections of the website.
