Find and track a DA

Hornsby Shire Council has a tool that allows you to find and track the progress of a development application.

Find and track a DA

Application Enquiry System

The Application Enquiry System allows applicants and residents to check the details and progress of a development application online, provide comment and view the supporting documentation submitted with the application.

Go to the Application Enquiry system

You can also look through all the recent development applications that have been submitted.

Please note: other application types and certificates cannot be viewed through the Application Enquiry System. These applications can be viewed by the public subject to public interest test considerations in accordance with the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009. If you have any questions please send your enquiry to

Building and Development Consent Register

If you don’t find the DA you’re looking for using the above tools you can also look though the register of all development applications for the period 1956 to 1974. You can access the register using the following link:

Building Applications Consents Registers

To access registers for the period after 1974 you will need to make a Government Information (Public Access) request, known as GIPA.
