The development process can be complex, and it is recommended that you utilise the services of professionals to assist you with the preparation of your plans and/ or application.

The main steps consist of:

There are a number of tasks that need to be completed in each of these steps. You are advised to make yourself familiar with all requirements, and contact Council's Environmental Service team should you require any further information or advice.
