A more efficient delivery strategy for Development Applications

The recently appointed Director of City Planning, Linda Perrine wants to ensure that Council’s processes follow local government best practice.

“Council is holding information sessions for regular applicants and professionals working in the local development industry to improve their experience of the Development Application process,” Ms Perrine said.

“Working with our key stakeholders is an important step in delivering efficient and consistent development application services. Applicants play a critical role ensuring that applications lodged with Council contain all the right information up front and are assessment ready.

“This will help the Hawkesbury Local Government Area to create a stronger economy where people want to live and work,” she said.

“As part of Council’s focus on getting lodgement right, we have recently conducted training with our Customer Service staff who are often the first point of contact in the development application process.”
