If you are unhappy with the Determination of your DA, Modification Application, or any conditions imposed, you can apply for a Review of Determination.

Applications for a Review of Determination must be made in accordance with Section 8.2 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.

You must lodge your application within six months from the date of Determination of the DA but – crucially - Council must also complete its Review within the same six-month period.

We therefore recommend you lodge your application as early as possible, preferably within eight weeks of the Determination, to give us enough time to conduct the Review.

Your application can include amendments and other information to address the Determination or conditions you wish to appeal.

As an alternative, you can lodge an appeal to the Land and Environment Court.

Reviews of large, complicated and controversial applications can take several months. You may need to seek advice from a consultant planner.

We also recommend you seek legal advice about this process.

You can apply for a Review of Determination through the NSW Planning Portal.

You can also request a quote for your Review of Consent application.
