Development Application Process

 

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: service@lanecove.nsw.gov.au 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
