Changes to DA process over holiday period

Published on 18 October 2018

During the Christmas holiday period there will be important changes to two aspects of the DA process.

Pre-DA consultation service

To ensure we continue to offer a quality service, no applications for Pre-DA consultations will be accepted between 1 December 2018 and 4 February 2019 due to staff and other resourcing issues over the holiday season.  This will enable us to focus on outstanding DAs and start the new year on the front foot.

Extended DA notification

Development applications submitted between 10 December 2018 and 30 January 2019 (both days inclusive) that require notification to surrounding properties will have an extended notification period due to Christmas and New Year holidays. The notification period will close on 14 February 2019 but may be further extended for some applications lodged in this period to comply with Council’s notification policy.

Other applications extended notification

Between 10 December and 31 December inclusive, the public exhibition period for amendments to undetermined development applications, modifications and reviews for applications that require re-notification is extended to 21 days.
