Development Applications on exhibition

Inner West Council was formed in May 2016 by the merger of the former Ashfield, Leichhardt and Marrickville councils.

This online register contains Development Applications (DAs) for suburbs in the former Marrickville Council area – Camperdown (south of Parramatta Road), Dulwich Hill, Enmore, Lewisham, Marrickville, Newtown (west of King Street and Church Street), Petersham, St Peters, Stanmore, Sydenham and Tempe.

DA registers for suburbs in the other two former council areas are available here:

  • Former Leichhardt Council – Annandale, Balmain, Balmain East, Birchgrove, Camperdown (north of Parramatta Road), Leichhardt, Lilyfield, Rozelle
  • Former Ashfield Council – Ashbury, Ashfield, Croydon, Croydon Park, Dobroyd Point, Haberfield, Hurlstone Park, Summer Hill

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.

For advice concerning submissions on applications, please go to the housing and development forms page.

Council maintains an online public register of Development Applications through the eProperty system, which can be used to display the following:

  • public notices of all Development Applications currently on exhibition; and
  • the current status and stage/decision of Development Applications lodged from 2005 onwards, using the "Search for a DA" link.


The information published on the Development Application page of Inner West Council's website contains certain documents submitted to Council at the time the development application was lodged. Please be aware that this documentation may not be a complete representation of all aspects of the development application as changes may have occurred since the application was lodged.

You cannot use this information to ascertain whether or not any approval for use or works has been granted by Council.

Council maintains files which may contain more current and comprehensive information relating to development applications. If you are interested in viewing this information, please complete and submit an Informal Access Application Form (available at this page – link will open in a new window/tab). Viewing of development application files is available at Council's office free of charge. Fees are applicable to requests for copies of documents.
