Submissions on Development Applications (DA) must be made within their exhibition period.
Our Community Participation Plan outlines when and by what method we'll notify neighbouring properties or the wider community of a DA.

If you feel a DA will affect you and you make a submission, our Assessment Officer will consider it as part of the assessment process.
Submissions can be:
- in support of

- object to part of
- suggest ways of overcoming concerns with an application, or
- suggest alternatives to a proposal or element of a proposal.
During a DAs public exhibition period, most plans and documents are available to view on our DA Tracker.
