Current Applications on Exhibition
Many planning applications are required to be displayed for public exhibition, usually for a period of two weeks. This gives any person who may be affected by the granting of the permit an opportunity to lodge a submission.
Any submissions to an application received by Council, including objections and letters of support, may also be made available for public viewing under Section 57(5) of the Act at one of our Customer Service Centres.
To find out more about current planning applications to be considered by Council or to view past decisions, go to Council Meeting Agendas and Minutes.
