Lodge applications for Development Approval online (improvement plans and schemes)
The Department's Online Lodgement Facility provides the functionality (through e-lodgement and large-file transfer) for users to lodge applications for Development Approval online.
Lodging an application requires the applicant to:
Upload electronic copies of supporting information, such as: development plans, technical reports and any other related information.
Applications for developments of State or regional significance to be determined by the Western Australian Planning Commission are subject to a different process.
Details of that application process – including application forms and fees – can be found on the State Development Assessment Unit page.
