Council must “give notice” of the application if the council determines that the proposal may cause material detriment to another person or if the planning scheme specifies that notice must given. Depending on the size and intensity of the proposed use or development, notice may be given by:
- Mailing information to property owners or occupiers who may be affected by the proposal;
- Placing a sign on the site of your property
- Advertising your planning application online
If it is determined your application required advertising, your planner will contact you in writing clearly outlining the process and advising you of the fee.
Please note that fee will need to be paid prior to your application going on notice.
Council cannot make a decision on the application until at least 14 days after the last notice has been given.
Objections and submission of support
In response to the public notice of the planning application, a member of the public may make a submission to the council objecting to or supporting the proposal and outlining the reasons for their objection or support.
Objections or submissions of support are encouraged to be submitted within 14 days of receiving the notice, but the council must consider any submission received before it makes its decision.
