Preparing an Application

All development application proposals within the Lachlan Shire must be prepared to ensure they comply with the relevant planning controls. Council's Local Environment Plan 2013 (LEP), Lachlan Development Control Plan 2018 and all applicable State Environmental Planning Policies must be addressed.

The requirements for lodging a Development Application are mandated by legislation.

In preparing your Development Application, you may need an architect or building designer to prepare (and cost) your plans, plus a number of specialists, depending on your site and your proposal e.g. land surveyor, engineer, town planner or building consultant.

You can find experienced people by;

  • Talking to friends and neighbours who have done similar work
  • Searching at professional organisation registration websites.

As you move to construction you will need a principal certifying authority (council or private), a principal contractor (builder) and any relevant sub-contractors.

The following lists details all plans and specifications which must be provided with a Development Application and the links to standard forms which must be submitted with your Development Application;

For further information regarding preparing a Development Application or the Planning Portal, please contact Council on 02 6895 1950, email or visit Council's administration buildings in Condobolin or Lake Cargelligo.
