Development applications

Public registers of information about development applications

Land use

You can search the public register to get details and follow the progress of applications, where:

  • the 'decision authority' is either
  • the application involves either land use, building or marine aquaculture
  • the application was lodged on or after 1 January 2010.

To request details of applications lodged before 1 January contact SCAP.

For details about applications where the 'decision authority' is a local council, contact the council where the development is located.

The application and assessment processes for all types of development are described in Development applications and how they are assessed.
