DAs are referred to DAC for determination where:
- The proposed development's estimated cost exceeds $15 million; or
- The proposed development involves significant conflict with CN’s adopted objectives or policies; or
- There have been 25 or more written objections received from independent parties and the concerns raised are unable to be resolved or be otherwise addressed by means of appropriate conditions of consent. Noting multiple submissions received from the same household will be considered as a single submission; or
- Two or more Councillors request in writing that the application be determined by the DAC.
If a DA requires determination by the DAC under reason 3) or 4) listed above, CN’s Public Voice and Public Briefing Policy provides an opportunity for parties to directly address the Public Voice (PV) Committee of Councillors regarding the proposed development.
In these circumstances, all submitters will be invited to apply to speak at a PV session. A Public Voice Application Form will need to be submitted within the PV invitation period, should you be interested in speaking at the PV session.
DAs referred to the HCCRPP are currently defined under Schedule 7 of the State Environmental Planning Policy (State and Regional Development) 2011. CN is responsible for the processing of the application, including the public exhibition, preparation of an assessment report and the issuing of the Notice of Determination.
HCCRPP meetings are conducted in public, unless otherwise directed by the Minister or the Chairperson. Persons (or persons on behalf of bodies) who make a submission on a matter before the HCCRPP may request to address the Panel. Requests can be made to the Panel Secretariat prior to the meeting by phoning (02) 9383 2121 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
