Next steps 

Council officers will review all submissions received and prepare a report for consideration by the Urban Planning Special Committee (UPSC).  

The UPSC will decide whether to:

  • Make changes to the amendment in response to submissions.
  • Seek appointment of an independent Panel and refer any submissions to the Panel for consideration.
  • Recommend adoption of the amendment by Council, if there are no submissions or all submissions have been resolved.
  • Abandon the amendment. 

The report is likely to be considered by the UPSC in late 2019.
