Notified consents and hearings

Council will decide whether or not to "notify" your application - to make it public and invite feedback - based on the relevant rules, the activity classification, and the scale and effects of the activity.

There are three "tracks" your consent can follow. The three paths are:

1. Non-notified No members of the public are involved and / or you have got the written approval of all the affected persons. Sometimes a non-notified consent is fast-tracked, if it meets several criteria. Most of our consents are non-notified.
2. Limited notification Only persons who we identify as affected can submit on your proposal.
3. Publicly notified Your proposal is advertised and anyone can make a submission.
