Sydney's expert residential drafting services team talk development applications
One of the biggest questions we get at Go Design Solutions is “how long will it take for my DA to be approved?”.
Providing expert residential drafting services across Sydney, we know that the time it takes for a DA to be approved can vary depending on a multitude of factors.
Back between 2010 and 2011, NSW Councils took on average 68 days to process a DA. Each Council has its own Local Development Performance Monitoring section on the NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure website. You can often find up to date information here.
There’s also 8 councils in Sydney that took on average over 100 days to finalise their DA’s which is certainly above average from most other councils.
Of course, if your proposed development is quite detailed and out of the norm, then your DA could take longer than normal. For example, if your DA required geotechnical reports, bushfire reports, traffic reports or arborist reports, then chances are it will take longer than average.
History tells us that roughly one third of DA’s are returned to applicants due to missing elements of information, so be sure to engage an expert like Go Design Solutions to get the job done right the first time.
