Planning Proposals (or ‘rezoning applications’)
Planning proposals are rezoning applications, where the applicant requires to make an application for a development to a Council, which is currently a development that is not currently permissible under a Council’s current Local Environment Plan.
Development of a site for an alternative land use may require the land to be rezoned. This process involves approval at both the local and state government level and usually requires a number of specialist consultant reports to be prepared to support the rezoning request.
The preparation of a Planning Proposal is the first step in making an amendment to the existing Local Environmental Plan. After discussions with Council officers, and if deemed feasibile, Suburban Town Planners consults with appropriately experienced and qualified legal support to advance the project in the most appropriate manner.
