An interactive aerial map of all development applications is on Newcastle Council’s website.
The map provides information about current development applications (DAs), modifications, reviews, and complying development certificates (CDCs), including all development determinations made in the 12 months prior.
Development locations are marked on a Google Earth-style map with a pin showing properties, street names, suburbs and local landmarks.
The coloured markers represent applications on exhibition (yellow), pending applications (blue) and those approved (green) or refused (red) in the past 12 months.
For the first time, Novocastrians can, from the convenience of their phone or computer, scroll through an aerial map of developments across the city and see what’s happening and where.” said Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes.
Users can also link to our development application tracker via the “more info” option when they scroll down in the pop-up box, which links to relevant documents, plans and application details.”
The City received six more development applications in the three months from March (332) than it did during the corresponding period last year (326).
Development applications for the three months were worth $141 million, which is estimated to sustain up to 830 local jobs.
