Review of Council’s Decision

If your application was refused, you may consider a further request to Council for a Review of Determination under Section 82 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act subject to requirements of the Act.

A Section 82A Review allows the application to be amended, as long as the development remains substantially the same as the original application. Council may need to notify your neighbours and/or advertise the proposed amendments. Fees apply for the request as well as any notification and/or advertising.  Speak to a Council Duty Planner for a fee quote.  Contact us

If you are dissatisfied with the determination of an application or the application is not answered by Council within the statutory time frame you can lodge an Appeal to the Land & Environment Court which will then determine the application. An applicant has 12 months from the date of determination to lodge an appeal to the Land and Environment Court.
