Initial Review

Your application will go through an initial administration review to check you are applying for the right approval type, the minimum supporting documents have been supplied, property owner consent has been given and the fees have been paid. This process generally takes five working days from lodgement.


All applications will receive an acknowledgement which will include your application number ie. DA2016 - 111111. You will need to provide this number for any future enquiries or when providing additional information.

Assessing Officer

Your application will be assigned to a Planner, Building Surveyor or Engineer who will review the impacts of the proposal. The contact details for your assessing officer are on your acknowledgement letter or can be looked up on Application Tracker.

Supplying Additional Supporting Information

During the assessment period we may request additional information which should be provided as quickly as possible to avoid any delays. Documents should be sent to our application office by email and supplied in PDF AppReg.Group@pmhc.nsw.gov.au. Please include your application number in your email subject. Our records staff will register the documents and forward them to your assessing officer.

Neighbour Notification & Advertising

Many development applications are publicly notified or advertised to allow interested people to make comments in relation to the proposal. Property owners are advised if their application will involve notification and the time period submissions will be accepted. Notification details and documents can be accessed via Application Tracker.

Tracking Assessment

You can monitor the progress of your application and access consents and plans via Application Tracker.
