Essential Details

  • Where did this planning proposal originate?
    The proponent (initiator) of the planning proposal is an independent party.
  • What is Council’s role in the planning proposal?
    Council is the Relevant Planning Authority (RPA). This means it is the body appointed to administrate the PP through the LEP making process. Council has also been 'delegated to make the plan' which means it is the final decision making body in this case.
