With the commencement of SARA, it is proposed that the existing eDA service be reviewed to provide greater integration with the MyDAS system and a more stable platform for electronic lodgement. Until this is completed, councils will continue to be able to use the existing eDA service.

If the state is the assessment manager you can no longer use eDA. You need to lodge your application through MyDAS.

eDA is an online service used by specific councils to support the preparation, lodgement and processing of development applications.

Please note as of 31 July 2014 until further notice, the eDA service will only be available during normal business hours between 8 am and 5.30 pm Monday to Friday. We apologise for any inconvenience.

System requirements

To use eDA you will need to use a computer with the following software:

  • Internet Explorer version 7 or later, or Firefox version 3 or later (PC or Mac).
  • Adobe Reader version 9.0 or higher is required to enable the eForms to function properly. Adobe Reader can be downloaded free from
