Threshold of 25 submissions recommended
The number of submissions required for a development application to be referred to a public Central Coast Council meeting may be dropped from the current 50 to 25 if a recommendation to the August 13 meeting is adopted.
The proposed amendment to the Policy for the Determination of Development Applications Subject to Significant Public Objection was placed on public exhibition with a threshold of 15 objections for automatic referral.
However, a report from Council's Environment and Planning Directorate has recommended the adoption by Councillors of a threshold of 25 submissions.
If passed the recommendation will "establish a threshold for automatic referral of DAs to Council for determination where 25 or more submissions objecting to the proposal are received".
