From the past to the present
The City of Sydney pursues a sensitive and balanced approach to development that protects residential amenity and the environment, preserves heritage and provides clarity for developers.
Development applications (DAs) and footway usage applications (FAs) are placed on public exhibition before they are determined by the City. You can locate most DAs or FAs that are on exhibition by using our online listing or the interactive map .
Find a development or footway usage application and track its progress after it has been on public exhibition. It includes consent modifications and decision reviews on DAs.
Please note: Documentation submitted with an application, such as plans and statements of environmental effects, is only accessible online while it is on exhibition via the listing and map .
Standards variations register
When variations have been made to development standards while the City determines particular DAs we must make this information available to the public .
