Consideration

When dealing with a development application, the Council must have regard to the following criteria:

  1. The Council must deal with a development application in accordance with the relevant Statutes, Regulations and Codes.
  2. In forming an opinion on the application, the Council will take into consideration the effect that the proposed development would have, after its development, including the following:
    1. the views to and the views from surrounding land,
    2. overshadowing of adjoining land, or
    3. the privacy of surrounding land, or
    4. noise, light, odour, dust (or similar) transmission to the surrounding land, or
    5. the visual impact of the proposed development in relation to the streetscape, or
    6. the heritage significance of an adjoining heritage item, as listed in Schedule 5 of the Bathurst Regional Local Environmental Plan 2014.
    7. any other issues considered by Council to be relevant to the application.
  3. The Council will consider all submissions made to it, but to influence the Council's decision such submissions must be relevant and well founded. Therefore, it is essential that submissions spell out clearly the grounds upon which they are based, and be accompanied by supporting documentation, where appropriate.
  4. The Council's final decision will be the result of a balanced consideration of the rights of both the applicant and the adjoining land owner(s).

Your attention is drawn to the Department of Planning’s Guidelines on Political Donations and Gifts. The Guidelines require the following:
