CIfA Newsflash 11/2023 | COCT: New DAMS Portal goes live on 28 February 2023

Dear Members

The new DAMS Portal goes live on 28 February 2023.
Friday was the last day you could access your applications in the old DAMS Portal before the system was shut down for the whole of this week to allow the migration of all circulating applications from old to new Dams before the new Dams Portal opens on Tuesday 28 February 2023.
The attached Plan and Build It Right Newsletter gives the application menu in the new DAMS Portal. Each of the menu items is a live hyperlink to the training manual applicable to that menu item.
The newsletter also announces that a short video will be available on the city’s website soon.
We have been given the video now which can be accessed here; covering note from the City below:
Please find the video training presentation as promised here. To play the recording, enable the slide show presentation.

Below find a live link to our to our DAMS webpage where our user guides can be found and business/planning-portal/online-planning-and-building-resources/dams
