Integrated Development approvals

An Integrated Development requires approval from one or more state government agencies (the relevant approval body) before consent can be granted by Council.

A list of potential required approvals can be found in Part 4, Section 4.46 of the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979.

Once it is ascertained which approval is required, the DA will be referred to the relevant body. A fee may be payable.

The relevant body will provide a response, including General Terms of Approval, which will be incorporated into the development consent. If the body does not grant approval, the DA will be refused.

The Integrated Development pathway is designed to provide certainty to developers.
