Our focus is to provide a great customer experience for you. Unfortunately, we are experiencing unprecedented demand in development services which is impacting on our assessment timeframes. To find out more, please view the below link:
In order to assist you in understanding Council's planning controls and the development assessment process, we provide a free Duty Planner service:
The service is designed to provide preliminary advice on planning-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.
To access the Duty Planner service please book an appointment through our on-line booking system below.
All appointments are for a maximum of 15 minutes and the form contains questions to ensure that your inquiry is efficiently directed. To allow 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.
Please check the following question before booking.
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.
