You can apply for a review of a council decision about a development application or modification under division 8.2 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act.
Applications need to be lodged via your NSW planning portal account within:
- 8 weeks of the determination of a development application
- 14 days of a rejection of a DA
- 28 days of a modification decision.
Early lodgement is recommended for all requests as council must finalise reviews within strict timeframes.
Requests can only be made by the original applicant and need to be uploaded to the NSW planning portal.
This is our essential guide to the information you must lodge with your review application.
A completed copy must be uploaded to the NSW planning portal with your application.
A review of determination needs to address the entire determination, not just parts of the proposal which are contested.
Applicants are also encouraged to consider lodging a modification of consent in some instances rather than requesting a review or appealing a decision.
Fees administered by both council and the NSW Department of Planning and Environment apply.
