When you send your submission to council, it is recorded and passed to the reporting planner. The reporting planner reviews your submission and notes down all of the issues you have raised. The planner will note if it is in support, opposition, or conditional support. If there are any specialist issues, such as historic trees or road safety, the planner will generally forward those parts of the submission to the relevant council specialists for comment. All submissions and the issues raised are then covered within the report, and addressed through the reporting planners' assessment, in conjunction with the applicant's assessment of effects.
Once this review is complete the reporting planner will make an assessment of the application and submissions in a hearing report. Prior to the hearing, this report will be circulated to all the parties involved in the public hearing. You can choose to participate or not participate in the hearing.
