A submission can be lodged any time after the notification period commences and before midnight on the last day of the notification period, i.e. between the first day and the last day stipulated in the public notice. If Council receives your submission outside of this time, your submission will be deemed not properly made.
- Sign in to MBRC Online Services (Instructions)
- Go to ‘Applications on notification’
- On the required Development application, click ‘View’ in top right hand corner
- Click ‘Lodge a submission’ in top left hand corner
Note: An electronic submission does not need to be signed but must state the name and address of each person making the submission.
You can withdraw your submission at any time before a decision is made. If you make a "properly made" submission, a copy of the Decision Notice and Development Permit will be posted to you after the application is decided by Council.
If you signed your name in a petition, only the "principal" petitioner, i.e. the person that signed their name first or identifies themselves as the contact person, will receive a copy of the Decision Notice and Development Permit.
If your submission is deemed properly made and you disagree strongly with the decision made by Council, you can make an appeal against the decision to the Planning and Environment Court.
