FOR YOUR INFORMATION - The following provides an overview of the Public Notification Categories
Public Notification - Category 1, 2 or 3 developments
There are three categories of public notification. Category 1 and Category 2 forms of development are listed in the Development Regulations and may also be listed in individual zones within the Council's Development Plan. If an application is categorised as either a Category 2 or 3 form of development there exists an opportunity to lodge a representation which must be lodged with the appropriate form within the specified time. Representations received after the stipulated deadline are deemed invalid and are not considered by the Council.
Category 1 covers 'development' which is exempt from public notification, and usually relates to uses that you would expect within a zone and which are not on a zone boundary where a conflict may arise. Examples might include:
Category 2 covers 'development' which requires limited public notification to owners or occupiers of land adjacent to a proposal, but does not give a person who lodges a representation a right of appeal against the decision. Examples include:
Category 3 developments are not listed as such - they include those kinds of development not listed as either Category 1 or 2 in Schedule 9 of the Development Regulations 1993. In this case, a public notice is placed in a newspaper and any person can make a representation on the application. Persons who make representations in relation to Category 3 must be heard if they request it as part of the submission. A representation to a Category 3 publicly notified proposal also has an appeal right against the decision.
Appeals against decisions on development applications are heard by a specialist Environment, Resources and Development Court (ERD Court12).
