Plan your development
If you are constructing something on your property – from fences, carports, sheds to a new residential, industrial or commercial building – you need to know whether you are required to obtain an approval and what development controls apply.
Development consulting tools
- The Electronic Housing Code website helps you identify if you need approval for your work under NSW regulations.
- Property Enquiry is the Council’s tool for viewing information on conditions that apply to land and property, including permitted development and maps.
Planning and guidelines
Depending on the type of your development, you will need to access local planning controls and guidelines as detailed on our City Planning page.
