Submissions in respect of a Development Application (DA) or DA Modification must be received by Council within fourteen (14) days of the date appearing on the application or, alternatively, within such additional period as may be determined by the Director, Development and Environmental Services or his/her delegate.
Persons making submissions to DAs or DA modifications are encouraged to do so via Council’s on-line DA Tracking site. Note that in accordance with the Government Information (Public Access) (GIPA) Act 2009, ALL submissions on DAs and DA Modification are being made available on the DA Tracking
site, unless they contain commercial information, or information that would likely prejudice the commercial position of the person who supplied it or information that reveals a trade secret; this includes all submissions made by Members of Parliament and/or Councillors on behalf of residents. Note that all submissions that are not electronically made will also be scanned and published on Council’s DA Tracking site.
All submissions must be addressed to the General Manager.
A submission may be made by any person whether or not that person has been, or is entitled to be given notice.
Submissions must be made in writing or electronically. Contents of submissions should be restricted to environmental and planning matters relating to the DA or DA modification and should NOT contain specific private, defamatory and risk to security information. If the submission is an objection, the submission must state the reasons for objection.
