The Duty Planner / Duty Development Engineer / Duty Accredited Certifier services are designed to provide preliminary information on planning, engineering and building related enquiries associated with properties.

Please note: Due to the high demand on this service, we are unable to go through all of Council's controls in detail or provide a detailed assessment of any development proposal you may be considering. If this is required, you may need to engage your own planning consultant or legal practitioner. 

All appointments are for a maximum of 15 minutes and the form contains questions to ensure that your inquiry is efficiently directed. To allow for our preparation booking close 24 hours before.

It is recommended that you book a Pre-Lodgement meeting for any large or more complex proposals prior to submitting your application to Council. 

Does your Development need approval from Council?

Many types of development do not need Council approval. To find out if your development is Exempt Development or the type of Consent required please review the information on the NSW Planning Portal.
