Liverpool. One of the best in NSW

For the second year running, Liverpool City Council has outstripped other councils in NSW by achieving one of the lowest average development-application processing times in the Sydney metropolitan area. Council took an average of 46 days to deal with a DA, compared to the statewide average of 67 days during the last financial year. The figures in a Department of Planning report, Local Development Performance Monitoring 2009-2010, also showed Liverpool City Council determined almost 1400 development applications in the 2009/2010 financial year, with an estimated value of $299.8 million.
