Week Ending 5 April 2024(PDF, 142KB) Application Tracker

Application Tracking

Application Tracking enables the public to access information about development associated applications and to track the progress of an application from lodgement to determination. 

Applications available in application tracking include:

  • Development Applications (DA's);
  • Applications to modify development applications (s4.55); and
  • Construction Certificates (CC's).

The information and documents have been provided to assist in tracking the progress of an application and represent milestones in the process but are not a complete history of the application.

Information may also be obtained on applications that:

  • Have recently been determined

Major Projects

Some types of development are deemed to have State Significance due to the size, economic value or potential impacts that a development may have.  Development that is State Significant Development (SSD) is identified in the State Environmental Planning Policy.

For information regarding all SSD applications currently on exhibition, under assessment or previously determined please visit Department of Planning Major Projects.

LEP Tracker 

The process of creating and modifying Local Environmental Plans (LEPs) starts with a planning proposal which is undertaken by Council.  Proposals are then submitted for an assessment by the Department of Planning and Environment to determine whether they have sufficient merit to proceed.  This is called "The Gateway".

The Tracker allows you to keep up-to-date with any current planning proposals.

Planning Agreement Register

Planning agreements (previously known as Voluntary Planning Agreements or VPA) are voluntary agreements entered into by the Council and a developer to deliver public benefits.  These include:

  • the dedication of land to Council;
  • monetary contributions;
  • public infrastructure;
  • community facilities;
  • affordable housing; and
  • any other material public benefit or any combination of these.

Planning agreements are prepared under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act in relation to either a planning proposal (rezoning application) or a development application.

Clause 4.6 Exceptions to Development Standards

Development standards are set within the Local Environmental Plan (LEP) and Development Control Plan (DCP).

Varying development standards in the LEP

Ordinarily, development standards in an LEP are fixed and cannot be varied, however, clause 4.6 provides for a limited opportunity to vary development standards for assessment with a development application.

Clause 4.6 provides a degree of flexibility so better development outcomes can be achieved for a proposed development, subject to demonstrating the development standard is unreasonable or unnecessary given the circumstances of the proposed development and land.  There is no automatic right to vary a development standard, therefore, the onus is on the applicant to provide justification for the variation.

When considering whether a variation should be granted, Council must consider both the mandatory zone objectives as well as any additional objectives for the standard.  Council must also consider whether non-compliance with the development standard raises any matter of significance for State and regional planning, and the public benefit of maintaining the adopted planning controls.  As part of the consideration, Council examines whether the proposed development is consistent with the State, regional or local planning objectives for the locality.

The link at the bottom of this page provides a list of all development standard variation approvals from the 2019-2020 financial year to the present.

Varying development standards in the DCP 

Council will consider variations to the development controls set out in the DCP where a proposed development can otherwise demonstrate that it achieves or improves upon the applicable planning objectives.

Where a proposal does not comply with a particular development control, the applicant may propose an alternative solution. Council will consider variations to the DCP provisions as set out in clause 1.8 in the DCP.

  • In some circumstances, variations can produce improved and innovative solutions for a particular site.

  • A written variation request must:

  1. Identify the development control that is to be varied and detail the extent of variation proposed;

  2. Identify the general and/or specific objectives of that control and how the variation complies with the objectives;

  3. Justify why the specific provisions of the policy do not make appropriate provisions with regard to the subject application; and

  4. Demonstrate why compliance with the provisions of this DCP is unreasonable or unnecessary in the particular circumstances of the case.

Note: Variations to a development control(s) will only be considered where the specific development objective can be met.
