Development applications

Development application update

Council is currently experiencing a higher than usual number of Development Applications being lodged for assessment. We are working as hard as we can to manage this increased demand, however there may be a delay in processing your application.

As part of a long term strategy to streamline our processing procedures, Council is implementing a range of initiatives to address the increased demands for our service in order to provide the best possible service to local residents.

This will include the introduction of a new technology system in the next six to nine months to allow customers to lodge and track applications electronically and measures to increase the speed and efficiency of our service.

We appreciate your understanding as we work to process your application as quickly as possible.
