Development Applications

The NSW Government has implemented the new ePlanning Digital Service. Central Darling Shire Council is now required to use this service.

This means all Development Applications need to be lodged through the new Planning Portal.

While the Planning Portal is managed by the NSW Government, Development Applications are still assessed and approved by Council unless Regulations require them to be referred to an outside Assessor.

It is now mandatory that development applications including modifications, applications for complying development certificates (CDCs) and for certificates under Part 6 of the EP&A Act, the assessment of those applications, as well as the issue of any relevant consents, CDCs and certificates are managed through the Portal.

You can learn more about the Development Application process through the link below:
