The DA mapping system is updated regularly to reflect the latest information as well as relevant government policy and legislative changes. Recent updates to mapping layers are summarised in the table below.
In association with the commencement of the Planning Act 2016 on 3 July 2017, a number of new mapping layers were added to the DA mapping system as noted below. The intention of these new mapping layers is to assist users in identifying and managing state interests.
As part of SARA’s initiative to co-locate all mapping associated with development assessment, the DA mapping system now includes mapping layers related to assessment benchmarks under the State Planning Policy (SPP) 2017.
