Our Customer Service Centre is closed
Customer service continues to be our top priority, along with your health and wellbeing and ours.
To help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in the community and in our workplace we have closed our Customer Service Centre.
Our development control team are working remotely and can be contacted by phone or email. General planning advice is available through our duty planner and senior planning staff. For further assistance please contact our Customer Service Centre.
Where possible we continue to process GIPA applications during this time, however we are experiencing slight delays in processing times of formal and informal GIPA applications. In light of the current restrictions, customers are unable to attend Council to view files at this time. Staff will contact customers once our Customer Service Centre reopens to arrange a suitable appointment time to view requested files. We recognise there may be slight delays in our response to customers and appreciate your understanding.
