DA Tracking & Public Register

Kempsey Shire Council has updated their system to assess development applications and improve the online tracker/register. Once a development application has been submitted, you can track its progress using the Application Register tool.

How you track your application will depend on when it was submitted.

Applications lodged on or AFTER 15 June 2021

For applications lodged on or after 15 June 2021 you will need to use the Application Register tool.
