Pre DA consultation

Pre-DA consultation service during Christmas and New Year

To ensure we continue to offer a quality service, no applications for Pre-DA consultations will be accepted between 1 December 2022 and 14 February 2023 due to staff leave and business closures over the holiday season.

The Pre-DA service will resume from 15 February 2023.


Council offers a Pre DA consultation service for development to assist in highlighting key issues associated with the development of land. The pre DA service will provide written advice from Council's assessing officer and, where relevant, specialist officers. The written feedback we provide can help you address any issues with your proposal before lodgement.

There are two categories of pre-DA as listed below, depending on the scope of the works proposed. For Category 1 pre DAs, consultations are provided as written advice. Once you receive the written comments, you can book a follow up phone call to discuss the advice and seek clarification of the issues raised in the feedback. Category 2 type applications are often more complex. As a consequence, a maximum 1 hour online meeting will also form a part of the service for this category of pre DA. This will be undertaken prior to you receiving written advice.
