Planning Development application lodgement times for Christmas

To ensure customer service levels are maintained for all gateway counter customers, we will be introducing a Planning Development Application lodgement cut off time to apply from Wednesday 18 December to Tuesday 24 December 2019.

This will mean that applicants wanting to lodge Planning Development Applications must submit them to the gateway planner at the gateway counter prior to noon on these 5 days; otherwise they will have to return the next business day to lodge them.

This will provide Planning Gateway staff adequate time to check, process and receipt applications before the close of business that same day.

Planning Development application lodgement cut off times will be:

  • Wednesday 18 December:  8 am – noon
  • Thursday 19 December:     8 am – noon
  • Friday 20 December:          8 am – noon 
  • Monday 23 December :     8 am – noon
  • Tuesday 24 December:       8 am – noon

The Gateway (Planning) counter will still be open for general planning enquires as usual on these days.
