DA notifications and making a submission
How to make a submission about a DA
Making comments to Council about a DA that is under assessment is known as making a submission. Full details and technical requirements relating to the notification of DAs and making of submissions can be found in Appendix 1 of Council's Community Participation Plan (CPP). Submissions can be made via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, submissions will not remain confidential as they are included in assessment reports and Council is obliged to comply with legislation under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009.
I wasn't notified of a DA but I want to make a submission
The DCP outlines a range of notification methods which determine which properties are formally notified of a DA under assessment. This is based on a combination of factors but generally relates to the type and form of development being proposed. Small scale development usually requires notification to the properties immediately surrounding the property, while large scale development would be notified to properties within a larger radius and publicly advertised.
You can still make a submission in relation to a DA if you were not formally notified, provided the DA is still under assessment and has not been determined.
