Please note, site inspections for Development Applications are currently being conducted from outside the property. Assessment officers will be in touch before visiting your property. Any inspections that require indoor assessment will be postponed until restrictions ease. This may result in unavoidable delays to final assessment for some applicants. We will prioritise these site visits as soon as it is safe to do so.
