If you're planning to build or renovate, it's likely you'll need to submit a Development Application (DA) to gain consent from Council. A DA is a formal request for consent to carry out a proposed development, such as:
- building, earthworks, landscaping and other works.
- demolishing a structure.
- changing the use of land.
- subdividing land or strata subdividing buildings.
- adjusting property boundaries.
Your DA must be approved before work can begin on your development.
