If you have received a Neighbour Notification letter in relation to a current Development Application (DA) you may choose to make a submission in relation to the proposed development. Please see below for how you can make a submission.
How to make a submission
During the notification period you are able to make a submission (either in support or by way of objection) by email to email@example.com, or in writing. Submissions must also be addressed to the General Manager, Wingecarribee Shire Council.
Submissions will be acknowledged by email or letter by post.
The supply of personal contact information in a submission is voluntary pursuant to the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998. By including your contact information in a submission you are acknowledging that it will be made available for public view at Council offices and through the Council website.
If you have given a gift or made a donation to a Councillor, an employee or an approved contractor of Council within the past two (2) years, by law you must include a disclosure statement with your submission.
Assessment and Decisions
When considering a DA the assessment officer will have regard to:
- Statutory requirements under the Act;
- Adopted policies of Council; and
- Issues raised in written submissions.
Some applications are determined under delegated authority of Council whilst others are determined by the Wingecarribee Local Planning Panel (LPP) or the Southern Regional Planning Panel.
If the application is to be referred to the LPP for determination you will not be notified in writing. Instead, you are required to check the website.
When a final determination is made all people who made a submission are informed of the outcome. The Assessment Report and Notice of Determination are made available on the DA Tracker.
