In order to assist you in understanding Council's planning controls and the development assessment process, we provide a free Duty Planner service from 8.30am–2.50pm, Monday to Friday.
About the Duty Planner Service
The service is designed to provide preliminary advice on planning related enquiries associated with properties. Please note: due to the high demand on this service, we are unable to go through all of Council's controls in detail or provide a detailed assessment of any development proposal you may be considering. If this is required, you may need to engage your own planning consultant or legal practitioner.
- Over the phone
- In Person - at the Council Administration Building. 62 - 64 Menangle Street, Picton
