Development Application Registration

Development applications (DAs) and modification applications which are to be determined by a Planning Panel must be registered by Council (using the below form) within 7 days of lodgement.

Applications must meet the criteria for regional development under Schedule 4A of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 and/or Part 4 of the State Environmental Planning Policy (State and Regional Development) 2011.

Only authorised Council staff should lodge a DA with the Planning Panels.

Capital investment value

The capital investment value (CIV) of a proposed development is to be calculated at the time of lodgement of the application for the purposes of deciding whether an application should be determined by a Planning Panel.

Reference is to be made to the definition of CIV in Clause 3 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000. Importantly, GST should not be included in the calculation of CIV.

Further guidance on CIV calculation can be found in Planning Circular PS 10-008.

Application documentation

Council is requested to provide to the Secretariat a copy of documentation submitted with the application as soon as possible – including the application form, SEE/EIS and plans. The preferred method is to provide an electronic copy via the Panels Dropbox account. Please contact the Secretariat for details.
