Advertised planning applications

Advertising is a community consultation process for many planning permit applications. It seeks the opinions of those who might be affected if a planning permit is granted.

Why we advertise

We advertise planning applications that might negatively impact neighbours. This impact could be local amenity or physical effects. For example, an increase in building size or higher patron numbers for a local business.

How we notify people

If we need to advertise, we’ll notify all people likely to be negatively affected. Advertising can take several forms, including:

  • writing to the owners or occupiers of adjoining properties
  • erecting a public notice on site, as well as direct mailing
  • notices in the newspaper.

For some applications, we must advertise the application to other authorities or refer it to them for comment. These authorities can object to the application or require conditions be placed on any Notice of Decision or permit issued.


The advertising period is 14 days, including weekends.

If you oppose an application

If a proposal negatively affects you, you can submit a formal objection to Council. You should do this within 14 days of receiving notice of the application.
