Permission to lodge

In the same way that permission from the landowner is required to lodge a development application on land, permission is also required for development applications on waterways under the ownership of Transport for NSW. In order to obtain 'permission to lodge' from Transport for NSW you must make a formal application.

In granting permission to lodge, Transport for NSW is only exercising its role as a landowner and is simply agreeing to the lodgement of a development application to the local council or consent authority. It is important to note that in granting permission to lodge, Transport for NSW is not exercising its role as a consent authority, and is also not endorsing the proposal nor issuing development consent.

If you have any further questions about obtaining permission to lodge please contact our Development Approvals by forwarding an email with your enquiry to maritimeplanning@transport.nsw.gov.au.
