Development Pre-lodgement Meetings

Dungog Shire Council's pre-lodgement meeting service enables applicants of development applications to meet with the relevant council officers to discuss their development prior to lodging a development application. This service is provided subject to a fee as prescribed in Councils adopted Fees and Charges.

The purpose of these meetings is to assist the proponent/applicant to prepare a full and detailed development application. Council recommends using its Development Planning service to first research and obtain preliminary application requirements and planning controls for your proposal. These will be used at your pre-lodgement meeting.

Council can not guarantee the outcome of your development application; a pre-lodgement meeting is beneficial as council officers can provide early comments on your proposal and specific investigations, and highlight any major concerns/issues that you need to address prior to lodging an application.

Applicants for any type of development can use the service. Applicants of all major and medium development types are encouraged to use the service to assist in lodgement of a complete and comprehensive application, resulting in quicker processing of your development application.
