Planning/Development application

Some projects will require a planning or development application in accordance with the local council or planning authority in your state or territory (Refer Approval processes for planning and construction). The planning or development application process focusses on ensuring that development proposals are assessed using a consistent process, assessment and decision criteria, and in accordance with community expectations as set out in the relevant local planning scheme. Timeframes for this process are determined by the local council or authority.

During this phase, you will confirm the statutory authority requirements; attend meetings with relevant authorities; prepare the application - including plans, diagrams, analyses, studies, reports and other information for the submission; and assist the client with lodging formal application.
