Development applications to be lodged online through NSW Planning Portal

Published on 19 June 2020

From 1 July 2020, development applications (DAs), applications for modifications of development consent and applications for review of determination with respect to development works within the City of Ryde must be submitted via the NSW Planning Portal website, as mandated by the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces.

Customers will need to register with the Department of Planning’s Planning Portal website and submit their application online via the Planning Portal. Council will then review the application for acceptance. If additional information is required to complete the lodgement, the applicant will be notified via the NSW Planning Portal. Customers will be able to track the progress of their application via the Planning Portal.

Council will no longer be able to accept physical applications by post or in person from 1 July 2020.

Customers requiring assistance using the Planning Portal can access HowTo guides or contact ServiceNSW on 1300 305 695 or email

For advice regarding planning and development matters, residents and building professionals can access City of Ryde’s free Building and Development Advisory Service by calling Council’s Customer Service Centre on 9952 8222.
