Development.i Tool - terms and conditions

Development.i is an easy to use online tool that allows people to search for development information by address, suburb, lot on plan, application number or via a map. All development applications matching the search criteria are displayed on a map, with further details and documents quickly accessed.

You can register to save your favourite searches and opt into receiving email notifications when an application, based on your personalised search criteria, is lodged or decided. Notifications are sent out each morning.

You should consider these Terms and Conditions of Use carefully before using Development.i and immediately stop using the service if you do not agree to these Terms. Use of Development.i is considered acceptance of these Terms and Conditions of Use.

1. The information provided on this tool will help you track the progress of Development Applications. It represents key milestones in the Development Application process, not a detailed history.
