Planning Development Applications regulations changes to be consulted

Image result for cartoon minor development planning These changes could include;

  • A sign outside a place that has lodged a development application
  • 15 days to make a representation (up from 10)
  • 20 days to do this for more complex developments
  • More people able to express their opinion, not just the neighbours
  • Approvals automatic if Councils take too long
  • Fast tracking of minor developments like cubby houses
I'm not quite sure how this will unlock investment but the government believes that it will. This entire procedure in counter to what what was originally proposed (you get the zoning right and we'll get it done) but is pleasing that someone might have listened to what people have been saying.
