With the commencement of the Planning Act 2016 on 3 July 2017, the state will be supporting an improved electronic development assessment system – MyDAS2. As a result, both eDA and the current MyDAS system will cease to accept new applications from 5 pm on 30 June 2017. Please note that the current MyDAS system will continue to be available after this date for the referral to SARA of development applications which are lodged under the Sustainable Planning Act 2009 prior to 3 July 2017. The department has prepared a fact sheet (PDF icon 535 KB) to assist with this transition.

MyDAS - online preparation and lodgement system

MyDAS (My Development Assessment System) is an online system that allows an applicant to prepare and lodge (or refer) particular applications to the Department, as the State Assessment and Referral Agency (SARA), where the State is the assessment manager or a referral agency for a development application.

The Sustainable Planning Regulation 2009 (schedules 6 and 7) will assist in determining the assessment manager and any referral agencies for your development application.

MyDAS allows:

  • online lodgement of development applications
  • tracking through the Integrated Development Assessment System (IDAS) process
  • integration with the DA mapping system
  • electronic payment of fees.

You can log on to MyDAS now, or, if you are a new MyDAS user, see the tips below on how to get started.

IMPORTANT: If you are lodging a development application with a local government, please do not use MyDAS. Some local governments accept applications lodged electronically through eDA, otherwise you will need to contact the relevant local government directly.
