Advertising of Planning Applications over 2020/2021 Christmas & New Year holiday period

We usually extend the Public Notice period during the holiday period to ensure that interested parties are provided with adequate time to review application information, seek professional assistance and lodge a formal objection if desired.

All public notices not completed by Monday 21 December 2020 must continue through to Wednesday 10 February 2021.

The last date for the erection of Advertising Notice signs is Friday 4 December 2020. Advertising started on or before 4 December will be completed by 21 December 2020. All other applications will continue through to 10 February 2021.

Any applications ready for advertising after 4 December 2020 will be held by Council and dispatched on Wednesday 27 January 2021, unless advised otherwise by the applicant.

Advertised planning permits

In many cases, when someone applies for a planning permit or permit amendment, we notify people who may be affected by those plans. This is known as advertising and if we think it’s required the Period of Public Notice must go for at least 14 days. 

If you don’t receive notification of a planning application that may affect you directly (in the mail, for example), you can view all advertised planning permit information on the ePlanning portal. 

To find advertised planning information:

  1. Log in to the ePlanning portal
  2. Select the Search the Register tab.
  3. From here you can enter an address, a suburb, a ward or an application reference number to find the planning application you’re looking for.   
  4. Once you’ve found the application you’re interested in you can use the Action button on the right hand side of the portal to take a next step. Depending on the application, you may be able to view more information, make an objection or make an enquiry. 

Note: If you only wish to look at applications that are currently being advertised, you can do so by selecting the Advertising option in the drop-down menu under Status.
