In Lane Cove, if you intend to build, develop or use land, your first step should be to contact Council.
Council can then tell you about:
The development assessment process
The rules for developing the particular site under the Council's local plan
Any issues they know might affect development and use of the site.
There are a number of useful tools available online to provide additional information. This includes:
DA Process during COVID-19
The following changes have been made to Council's DA Process in response to COVID-19 and the closure of the Council building:
- All applications are to be lodged electronically via the NSW Planning Portal. Find out more about Online DA Lodgement.
- A hard copy application can still be made if absolutely necessary but it is required to be delivered to an alternate postal address:
Lane Cove Council
12 Lloyd Rees Drive
Lane Cove West 2066
- All planning enquiries and more formal pre-DA applications are to be undertaken by remote means (email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone (02) 9911 3555).
Council's Development Assessment Team is committed to continuity of service during this time and appreciate your co-operation with the above changes
