DA tracking

Development application tracking is a free service providing fast, convenient access to DA status, information and public documents 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Also available is information on construction certificates (CC) and complying development certificates (CDC) that have been issued for a property and Building Information Certificates (Unauthorised Works) under assessment or issued for works on a property.

The following DA related documents can be viewed on the tracker:

  • Any associated plans and documents.
  • Any amended plans or documents submitted during assessment.
  • Notices of determination and approved plans.

There are two option to search and track development applications:

  1. DA tracking application search*

Use this option to search for an individual DA, to view DAs currently on notification or to view DAs submitted/determined in the past week or month.

DA notifications and making a submission

How to make a submission about a DA

Making comments to Council about a DA that is under assessment is known as making a submission. Full details and technical requirements relating to the notification of DAs and making of submissions can be found in the notification part of our Development Control Plan (DCP).

I wasn't notified of a DA but I want to make a submission

The DCP outlines a range of notification methods which determine which properties are formally notified of a DA under assessment. This is based on a combination of factors but generally relates to the type and form of development being proposed. Small scale development usually requires notification to the properties immediately surrounding the property, while large scale development would be notified to properties within a larger radius and publicly advertised.

You can still make a submission in relation to a DA if you were not formally notified, provided the DA is still under assessment and has not been determined. You should contact the council officer responsible for assessing the DA on 9424 0000 and inform them that you wish to make a submission.
