By using Council's eServices site you can check for applications that are recorded over a property including decision notices where applicable, the zoning of an allotment and if there are any planning overlays affecting an allotment.
Council is required, under the Sustainable Planning Act 2009, Chapter 9, part 6 section 729 (3), to publish the following documents on Council’s website.
- All decision notices and negotiated decision notices given by the assessment manager; and
- All deemed approval notices given to the assessment manager; and
- All decision notices amended under chapter 6, part 8, division 2 or 3.
Council has these documents available since amalgamations in 2008, and they can be found by conducting a property search or development application search on Council’s eServices site.
If you would like assistance please contact Council.
NOTE: Building and plumbing decision notices are not available electronically; however you can contact Council to obtain a copy.
During the notification period, any person other than the applicant or a concurrence agency may make a submission to the assessment manager about the application. The Notification period only applies to Impact assessable development applications.
A submission is a written comment about a development application made by any interested member of the community (for example, person, group or organisation) about a development application. A submission may:
- object to all or part of the development, and /or
- support all or part of the application
The assessment manager must accept a submission if the submission is a properly made submission. In order to be considered a properly made submission, the submission must:
- be in writing and, unless the submission is made electronically, be signed by each person who made the submission
- be received during the notification period
- state the name and residential or business address of each person who made the submission
- state the grounds of the submission and the facts and circumstances relied on in support of the grounds; and
- be made to the assessment manager
By making a properly made submission about an application, a submitter gains the right to appeal to the Planning and Environment Court (the court) about any decision made by the assessment manager about the application.
For further information please refer to chapter 6, part 4, division 3 of the Sustainable Planning Act 2009, or the Department of Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning fact sheet – making a submission about a development application. Alternatively, contact Council on (07) 5424 4000.
