You must upload to the Planning Portal a completed owners' consent and signature of all landowners. If there is more than one, every owner must sign.
If the owner is a company or owners' corporation, the application must be signed by an authorised person under the company or common seal.
If your property is a strata unit, and you are proposing a development beyond your unit entitlement, you will need the approval of the owners’ corporation.
If you've recently purchased the property, Council may not yet have received formal notice of the sale and the previous owner may still be listed in our records. If this is the case, provide a letter from your solicitor or other evidence to prove that ownership has changed.
If any of the owners' names have changed (e.g. by marriage) but this has not yet been updated by NSW Land Registry Services, we will need evidence confirming the change of name, such as a driver’s licence or marriage certificate.
For development below the mean high-water mark, such as jetties, ramps and pontoons, the landowner is usually the NSW Government and you will need its consent before lodging the DA.
If the property is owned by Sutherland Shire, you will need to apply for our consent.
Application for Owners Consent – DA/Minor Works
If the application form is not signed by all the landowners - and by you as the applicant - we cannot accept it.
