As part of the planning process, in some cases when someone applies for a planning permit or an amendment to an existing permit, we notify people who may be affected by the proposal. This process is called 'Public Notification' and can be carried out in different forms:

  • Letter (to adjoining properties only);
  • Board ( to be displayed on site);
  • Council's website;
  • Local newspaper (for major developments)

A copy of the application plans and supporting documentation is available through our Planning Application Status and Tracking Application (PASTA) during the advertising period. Please ensure that you inspect the advertising documents so that you clearly understand what is proposed before you make an objection. All advertised documentation is placed on Council's website for the required notice period.

Track a planning permit application status (PASTA)

You can find out the current status of a planning permit application online, through our Planning Application Status and Tracking Application (PASTA).

PASTA is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and allows you to quickly check:

  • who is handling your application
  • the status of your application
  • view advertised applications and relevant documentation

Search for a planning application through PASTA

The information provided through PASTA abides by the Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014 as it provides information that is currently available to the public at our municipal offices.

Object to a planning application

You will need to submit your objection in writing before we make a decision on the relevant application, but preferably before the advertising period ends.

We will write to you to confirm that we’ve received your objection and advise you of the timing and process for deciding the application in subsequent letters.

Note: Your full objection becomes a public document including your personal details, and can be viewed by anyone on request.
