Requests to prepare a planning proposal

Modifications to the City’s planning controls

A planning proposal is the process to amend the City’s planning instruments.

We have successfully processed many planning proposals that have modified the planning controls to provide better outcomes than would be achieved under existing controls.

Proponents may make a submission requesting the City prepare a planning proposal. We welcome early discussions on proposals.

Find out more with the NSW Planning and Environment’s guide to preparing planning proposals.

To lodge your proposal, please complete and submit the form request to prepare a planning proposal.

We have also prepared a checklist of studies and supporting information required.  

To confirm the studies required, you should consult with the City.

You can view the fees for requests for planning proposals (see page 6):

  • minor applications – administrative changes or corrections
  • major applications – all other requests for material changes to zoning and/or development standards.
