Development Applications

The City of Nedlands receives numerous development applications each year which require community consultation for numerous reasons such as the City requiring the use of discretion in decision making or the type of development application requiring community consultation as per City Policy.

This engagement page is a central place to view and provide submissions on all current development applications of a standard or basic nature such as single and grouped dwelling developments, home business applications and change of use applications. Significant development applications will be advertised on a separate page.

For an overview of the Western Australian planning system, including how public advertising fits into the assessment of development applications, see here.

Community input helps the City in making decisions to approve applications with or without conditions - or to refuse applications.
