Development Applications

Gundagai Shire Council seeks to actively encourage and assist developers whilst remaining committed to environmental sustainability and the preservation of areas and buildings of cultural and/or heritage significance.

Council is the approval body for all development applications.

Development applications other than residential construction certificates are recommended for approval by Council's Tourism and Development Committee which meets on the 1st Tuesday of each month.

There are now separate application forms for development applications (land use and planning only), construction certificate applications and complying development applications.  Council uses prescribed forms to comply with the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act.  They are available from the Shire Office.  The new forms are different from the previous white colour envelope style and Council's Planning, Health and Building staff can assist with completion of these forms. 

The new Gundagai Local Environmental Plan 2011 introduces new provisions in guiding future land use planning and development across the shire.  Pre Application meetings between applicant and staff are encouraged and record of meeting/s can be provided free of cost. 


No construction work can be undertaken until approval has been received for all applications
