Pre-lodgement meetings

Pre-lodgement meetings are a great way to assess your proposed development in the early planning stages. A pre-lodgement meeting is between yourself and a council officer, where you discuss your application and any potential issues with it before you lodge your application.

Why you should book a pre-lodgement meeting

  • It's an opportunity to discuss your proposed development with council
  • If any issues arise from the meeting, planners can work with you to resolve them before you submit your application, making the application process more efficient for you
  • It's free of charge.

For more information on pre-lodgement meetings please read our pre-lodgement information sheet.

Please note: Pre-lodgement meetings are intended to be an informal way to discuss an already prepared development application. Because council assesses development applications, we may not be able to give full advice on your application. For advice on completing a development application, view council's page on Preparing an Application.
