Applying for an ePadDwell – Single Dwelling Houses

For a relatively small fee ePadDwell provides a quick emailed response with relevant advice for anyone contemplating a new dwelling (whether bespoke or by a project home builder.

An ePadDwell is not a pre-approval.  It is assistance in ensuring the relevant controls are appropriately addressed.  The subsequent DA remains subject to the legislated assessment process.  

For alterations and additions to a dwelling seek advice from Council’s duty planner, for multi unit dwellings (such as dual occupancy, town house / villa or residential flat buildings)  apply for a more formal Pre Application Discussion

Many residential house lots in the Sutherland Shire have unique characteristics – such as shape, frontage, slope or an environmental constraint such as bushfire hazard or flooding.

Provide a sketch plans on your site, to scale, and receive comment on one or two critical planning and design issues, such as setbacks, or driveway crossing. A subsequent application that addresses the issues identified will be resourced promptly.

If the request concerns a new lot in an unregistered subdivision please provide sufficient information, such as future street address or future lot and DP so that the correct site can be identified.
