Development

Development Applications (DAs) are formal requests for permission to carry out a development. 'Development' is defined under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 as:

  • the use of land;
  • the subdivision of land;
  • the erection of a building;
  • the carrying out of work;
  • demolition; or
  • any other matter controlled by an environmental planning instrument.

All development – except for those listed as exempt or complying development – requires a Development Application.
