Applications on Public Notification

The Planning Act 2016 requires the public to be notified about any impact assessable development applications during the assessment process.

The process of public notification allows adjoining or nearby property owners, and others, the opportunity to look at a proposed development, consider the likely impacts the proposal may have on them, and provide comment about the proposal prior to a decision being made.
