Surrender a development consent

You may seek to surrender your development consent in accordance with Section 4.17 or 4.63 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.

Surrendering the consent means that the development can no longer proceed. Any works which have been undertaken must be to the satisfaction of Council and no further works can take place.
