As part of the preliminary assessment, the planner will check the application to ensure there is sufficient information to assess the application. If there is not enough information to enable a thorough assessment, the planner may request further information within 28 days of lodgement of the application. A request for further information may also identify any preliminary concerns with the proposal. A timeframe will be given for the information to be provided and if it is not received within the required time frame the application will lapse.
Further information can be provided to Council via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Extension of Time to Submit Further Information
Further information is usually required to be submitted to Council within 30 days from the date of the request. If more time is needed t provide the information, a request must be made in writing to the planner before the due date stated in the further information letter outlining the reason for requesting more time.
A request can be provided to Council via email to: email@example.com.
Council will consider your request for more time and respond by letter or email. If the request is approved, a new date will be specified by which the information must be provided.
Missing the due date for further information
If you do not provide all the requested information or request in writing more time before the due date, your application will lapse. This means that you will have to submit a new planning permit application which will also include payment of the application fee.
Receipt of further information
Once the requested further information is received, the application will proceed to the next stage of the process, which includes consideration of whether or not public notification (advertising) of the proposal is required. The application may also need to be referred to external authorities, or internal Council departments for comment.
