Development Assessment

Yass Valley Council's Planning and Development Services is responsible for ensuring that development within the Yass Valley complies with relevant legislation and is assessed against potential environmental impacts.

A Development Application (DA) may be required for certain uses, development, demolition, carrying out works or subdivision.

The NSW Exempt and Complying Development, identifies certain development types that may not require a DA.

Approval may also be required for other works and activities from either Council or other Government Agencies. See below for FAQ's on common development related issues:
