The development industry is encouraged to utilize these guidelines before planning begins, enabling faster and more effective processing of developments through Council.
Developers are required to complete and submit the 'Development Asset Spreadsheet' to Council to provide asset information for all new infrastructure dedicated to Council as part of a new development.
A Construction Certificate Application Form must be completed and submitted to Council as required by conditions of a development consent.
