What is a submission?
Members of the public can support or oppose impact assessable development applications by making a formal submission. A submission is a written statement supporting or opposing a proposed development.

Council needs to understand the reasons behind your submission. For example, if you think the type of development proposed for your area is unsuitable, you need to say why it is unsuitable, not simply that you do not like it.
A person who makes a properly made submission is called the 'submitter'. All submissions are considered in the assessment of the application. Once the application is decided and the applicant appeal period has ended, a copy of the Decision Notice is sent to all submitters; or the first person on the list of 'submitters' if the submission was signed by several people (e.g. a petition).
