Applying for an Environmental Authority

All the environmentally relevant activities listed are known as concurrence environmentally relevant activities and trigger a material change of use for the environmentally relevant activity under the Planning Act 2016. To make an application that includes a concurrence environmentally relevant activity you must apply to the assessment manager using the Development Assessment Rules process. You must use the DA Form relevant for your development to apply for a development permit.

The development application will be used as an application for a development permit and an environmental authority. If you are not a registered suitable operator and have not applied to the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection to be a suitable operator, you must complete the suitable operator section of the application form and Council will forward the form to the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection.
