Assess

Development Applications are assessed under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.

This involves considering all relevant environmental planning instruments, development control plans, council policies, the likely impacts of the development, the suitability of the site for the proposed development and any submissions received.

Some of the matters considered include:

  • Solar access
  • Landscaping and open space
  • Floor area
  • Height, form and materials
  • Building setbacks
  • Streetscape
  • Visual and acoustic privacy
  • Impact on the foreshore
  • Views
  • Traffic and parking implications
