The planning process focuses particularly on the impact of a proposal on the site and neighbouring land, including the following types of issues:

  • Does it comply with Planning Scheme requirements?
  • Is it located an appropriate distance from boundaries?
  • Is the scale and size appropriate for the area?
  • Are there adequate vehicle-manoeuvring & parking areas?
  • Does it create any access or traffic safety issues?
  • Are the hours of operation appropriate for the area?
  • Are there any environmental constraints?
