From 1 January 2021, developers must consult with residents on a wider range of major projects across more areas of Canberra before lodging their Development Applications. Find out more about our updated guidelines for pre-Development Application community consultations.
Development Applications (DAs) open for public comment between Sunday 20 December 2020 and Sunday 10 January 2021 will have 12 extra working days added to the public notification period to allow for the Christmas holidays.
The community must now be consulted before a development application (DA) is lodged for prescribed developments in greenfield areas that fall within 100 metres of a dwelling. Developers should check if recent changes to the exemption from pre-DA consultation in certain greenfield areas affect them.
