Certain development applications that are subject to impact assessment, and some other change applications, must be advertised publicly for formal comments. Council considers these comments as part of the assessment process. This provides the opportunity for the community to have a say about the proposed or a change application.
The applications in the below link are currently open for public submissions:
The Statement of Reasons for decisions which Council has made on development applications is published below in accordance with the requirements of section 63(5) of the Planning Act 2016.
The reasons for the decision that Council has made on a particular development application are outlined on Council’s Statement of Reasons.
Statement of Reasons
In accordance with the Planning Act 2016 certain development applications are required to go through a period of public notification.
Public notification informs the community of the proposal and provides the community with an opportunity to make submissions that must be taken into account before the development application is decided.
During the public notification period, the community can make submissions about a development application to the assessment manager, who will consider these when making their decision. The submissions must be ‘properly made’, which means they must be in writing, on topic, signed and submitted by the due date. A fact sheet on how to make a Properly made submission can be found below.

Under the Planning Act, only parties who have made a submission against an application will have appeal rights in the Planning and Environment Court.
