About this document

A Crown development application form is an approved form under section 131 of the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 (the Act) and regulation 107(1) of the Planning, Development and Infrastructure (General) Regulations 2017.

Crown development is a type of development that is undertaken or sponsored by a Crown or State authority and assessed by the Minister for Planning and Local Government or their delegate.

In order to undertake Crown development, a Crown development application must be lodged for approval. This form outlines a summary of the proposed Crown development, including applicant and location details and an estimated development cost.

All Crown development applications must be lodged with the State Commission Assessment Panel (SCAP) for assessment. The SCAP will then prepare a report to the Minister who decides whether to approve or refuse the application. The Minister may also impose conditions or approve all or part of a development. There is no appeal right against the Minister’s decision.

When a State agency proposes to undertake development in a partnership or joint venture (other than for the provision of public infrastructure) with a person or body which is not a State agency, the application must be made and assessed in the same manner as a private sector application. In all other circumstances, an application for Crown development must be lodged with SCAP for assessment as a Crown application.

This development application form is not required to be completed if you are lodging an application electronically.
