Perhaps you have plans to extend your home or build a new one. Perhaps your neighbours are proposing to build a second house or subdivide their block.
These are just a few of the many reasons why you may find yourself involved in the planning process often whether you want to be or not. However it happens, when it does it can be confusing and even a little daunting. But it need not be.
Planning is an essential part of the development process. Good planning can mean the difference between an average development and an excellent outcome that meets the community’s expectations.
The planning process can also provide anyone with an interest in a proposed use or development to get involved and have their say.
