Public notification and consultation
Council is required to notify adjoining and neighbouring owners that may be affected by a development proposal unless the proposal is of a minor nature. Therefore, in most instances, Council will send out notification letters to persons or organisations that may wish to comment on or object to the proposed development.
In some circumstances, Council is also required to advertise a Development Application in the local newspaper (refer to Section A3 of the Randwick Comprehensive Development Control Plan 2013). DAs that require advertising in the local press will incur an additional advertising fee.
During the notification/advertising period, the notification plans will be available for viewing online and at Council's Customer Service Centre. Any interested parties are invited to view the plans and make submissions. There is more information about making submissions on our Approval Overview page.
