Changes to development application process over holiday period

Published on 1 November 2017

During the Christmas holiday period at the end of 2017 and beginning of 2018, there are important changes to two aspects of the development application 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 2017 and 14 February 2018 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 2017 and 30 January 2018 (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 2018 but may be further extended for some applications lodged in this period to comply with Council’s notification policy.

For more information, please call Customer Service on 9424 0000.
