Community participation plan

Community participation plan


The City's community participation plan came into effect on 29 November 2019.

Find out more

We invite your feedback on our new draft community participation plan.

The draft plan sets out our community participation requirements under planning legislation, including public exhibition timeframes for strategic plans and development applications. It applies to planning proposals, contributions plans, draft development control plans, planning agreements and development applications.

It incorporates our advertising and processes on how we notify you about development applications and the requirements for strategic plans set by planning legislation.

An associated draft development control plan is also on exhibition. If Council approves the new community participation plan after this exhibition, the control plan will remove the previous notification and advertising procedures. 

This plan is a new requirement under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.
