SARA is supported by MyDAS, an online system that allows you to prepare and lodge or refer particular applications to the department, as the single state assessment and referral agency.

If you are lodging a development application to local government, as assessment manager, you do not use MyDAS to lodge the application to the local government.

MyDAS will provide:

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

To prepare IDAS forms for lodgement there are two options:

  • prepare the IDAS forms through MyDAS
  • prepare the IDAS forms from a PDF format document to either print and write on, or fill in electronically.

IDAS checklists are also available to assist applicants determine if their development is assessable development under Schedule 3 of the Sustainable Planning Regulation 2009 and therefore requiring a development application. These checklists are available on the IDAS forms page.
