Application Tracking Tools

Here you can track your DA, or check out what's happening with developments in your area.

Development Application Tracking (DA Tracking) is a free service providing fast, convenient access to DA status and information, 24/7. DA tracking allows you to track the progress of applications from lodgement through to determination.

MidCoast Council has a new online tool for DA Tracking.

The new portal consolidates all our DA information services in a single system and improves the service we can offer to you.
