180 Jubilee Terrace, Bardon – Extension to aChild Care Centre on behalf of a community organisation, to a Locally ListedHeritage Place with State Government Referral for a State Controlled Road(Jubilee Terrace)
Prelodgementdiscussions were held with Council to gain in-principle support for theproposal, and an early Referral Agency Response was sought from SARA, to allowthe Development Application to be processed and approved by Council, as quicklyas possible. Delays were had as a result of the length of time taken byCouncil to issue an invoice for the application fee with the application beingon behalf of a charitable organisation. Due to these delays, thedecision was made to pay the full fee, and seek a refund post lodgement.
This shows thatwhat should be trivial matters can cause delays due to Council processes. The application wasapproved in one month, with approval being issued just before Christmas, asdesired by the client.
