Pre-Development Applications

You can lodge a preliminary application with Council to obtain an opinion on a proposal before you lodge a formal development application. Waverly Council's pre-DA lodgement meetings provide future applicants who have already prepared concept development plans with the opportunity to discuss the details of their proposal. The purpose of these meetings is to identify any issues or concerns with proposals that should be addressed prior to the application being lodged.

Waverly Council encourages pre-DA meetings for the following types of developments:

  • Residential development for multi-unit developments, residential flat buildings, mixed use developments with both residential and commercial and large scale subdivisions;
  • Commercial development (other than: minor additions/alterations or change of use applications);
  • Industrial development (other than minor additions/alterations or change of use applications);
  • Other development where significant site constraints exist (discuss with Council's Duty Planner first on 8305 8484).
