Development Process

Consult with your Designer

Council encourages you to engage a professional to prepare your plans. The plans must contain all relevant information to the relevant Australian Standard. Investing in a draftsperson or architect will often produce a better design and clearer plans that contain all the information required.

Council cannot recommend architects, however, the following resources may help you find people with design experience. Whoever you choose, ask them to show you examples of their finished work before you employ them. Poor quality plans may result in rejection of applications or delays in processing time.
