E-planning

Council operates an E-Planning site which allows people to view general property information, read local planning requirements and track their development applications through the assessment process.

Duty Planner & Duty Health & Building Surveyor

Council’s Duty Planner & Duty Health & Building Surveyor are available from 8.30am to noon, Monday to Friday to answer general enquiries relating to proposed developments or lodging a development application. They can be contacted via 02 6578 7290 or by visiting Council between these hours.

Development Advisory Panel

The Development Advisory Panel (DAP) is a meeting between prospective applicants and Council's technical staff to discuss a proposed development. DAP provides prospective applicants with an opportunity to discuss and receive feedback from Council on the technical aspects of the development proposal.

It is not mandatory to attend DAP prior to making a development application, however, DAP is encouraged by Council as the most appropriate means of addressing enquiries of a complex or site specific nature, where formal feedback is wanted from Council on a specific development concept or proposal prior to the physical lodgement of the development application.

Refer to Council’s Development Advisory Panel fact sheet for further information about the DAP. To request a meeting with the DAP, please submit a completed Development Advisory Panel meeting request form to Council.

For further information on certification, design guidance, approvals, and property tools visit Singleton Council.
