Under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (NSW) a “development” is defined as the use or subdivision of land, the construction or demolition of a building, or the carrying out of any work on the land.

Development Approval, hereinafter DA, is required before construction, demolition or any other work can be carried out on land. Generally, there are a range of categories, such as, small residential, small commercial, tree removal, small bars, and food and drink premises, amongst others. There may be specific DA forms to complete and submit depending on the proposed development and the location of said development.

Before submitting a DA, there may be various matters to investigate, including but not limited to, whether development is permissible in the proposed location and whether the DA is actually required at all for your proposed development.

If you are thinking about developing a property, it is important to meet with a Property Lawyer to discuss your proposed plans prior to carrying out any works on the said property. At Navado, our team  of Property Lawyers can provide you with legal advice, including your rights as a developer, the legislation you may need to comply with, determining the appropriate DA to apply for and various other requirement of the Development process.

Furthermore, if you have a proposed plan and need DA Advice or assistance with preparing your DA, our team of Property Lawyers can guide you through the process and ensure you have completed all the relevant requirements in order to be eligible for DA consideration.
