Which application do I need to apply for?

There are four application processes that may apply to you depending on your project. Our team can help you determine which application is right for you:

  • Development application (DA)
  • Application for Sydney Airport Consent (SC)
  • Application for Minor Works Authorisation (MW)
  • Amended Application (AA)

You’ll also need to submit a building application to the Airport Building Controller (ABC) to secure a Works Permit, Building Permit or Demolition Authority.

Using consistent drawings with the same revision numbers will help your application proceed through the process in a timely manner.
