The Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 makes provision for a wide range of information to be publicly available, including information about Development Applications and associated documents received in relation to a proposed development.
Hornsby Shire Council provides this information online which allows you to search a particular property, track the progress of an application, browse planning instruments and identify what development may be permissible on a property.
You can search a property by entering the Address under the Advanced Search tab.
