Following completion of the exhibition period for a planning proposal, Council undertakes a review of any submissions that have been received in relation to the proposal and issues raised are taken into consideration in finalisation of the proposal. Council staff then prepare a report to a formal Council meeting.
The Council report for finalisation of a planning proposal will generally explain the findings from the consultation process and make a recommendation on how to proceed in terms of the proposed LEP amendment. Council will either support the proposed recommendation or will decide not to support the recommendation.
Where fees are payable to progress the proposal to the next stage in the process, such fees will be identified in the invoice issued by Council. Fees payable are determined in accordance with Council’s adopted fees and charges schedule and must be paid prior to the proposal progressing further.
