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.
Please note: Documents and plans for CC and CDC applications are not available via DA Tracking - you will need to apply for these under a GIPA application. To find out more please see Council's page on Access to Information.
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.
You now also have access to view the 3D Digital Model for applicable development applications. Click here for instructions on how to use the 3D viewer - Tips for viewing 3D Digital Models(PDF, 296KB).
Please note: 3D Models are only required to be submitted for larger scale development proposals like Seniors Living developments or Residential Flat Buildings. Relevant applications will have a link on the information page for the application in DA Tracking.

DA notifications and making a submission
Extended DA notification during Christmas and New Year
Development applications, modifications of consent applications (s4.55/4.56) and reviews of determinations (S8.2) lodged between 10 December 2022 and 30 January 2023 (inclusive), will have the public exhibition period extended due to the Christmas and New Year holidays, reflective of Council’s Community Participation Plan (CPP). The exhibition period will close on 14 February 2023, but may be further extended for some applications lodged in this period to comply with Council’s CPP. Amendments to undetermined development applications, modifications of consent (s4.55/4.56) and reviews of determination (s8.2) received between 10 December and 31 December 2022 (inclusive), requiring re-notification, will have the public exhibition period extended from 14 days to 21 days in accordance with Council’s CPP. For more information call Customer Service on 9424 0000.
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 Appendix 1 of Council's Community Participation Plan (CPP). Submissions can be made via email to email@example.com.
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.
Submission acknowledgement during December 2022 and January 2023
Council will continue to accept submissions relating to applications throughout the Christmas and New Year period. However, please be advised that between12 December 2022 and 8 January 2023 the timeframes for an acknowledgment letter in response to the submission may be extended to accommodate the Christmas and New Year break holiday period.
