As from 1st January 2007 all development applications require a signed declaration by a licensed electrician on the declaration form available at the Council Office or on the Council website. If the electrician is not able to declare the proposed work to be exempt, because there is not satisfactory clearances from power lines, then the proposal must be discussed with him/her and the Office of the Technical Regulator to reach a satisfactory solution. Either way, the development application must include a certificate to satisfy these requirements.
A Development Application Form must be completed with all relevant detail and signed by applicant/owner. Copies of plans/specifications must be forwarded with the application and fees must be paid upon lodgement at the Council Office. For more information please contact Emma McDonald, Manager Environmental Services on 8688 2101 or 0427 882 202 or email mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
