At its meeting on 26 June 2023, Council supported a proposed amendment to the Woollahra Community Participation Plan to no longer require advertising of development applications (DAs) in the Wentworth Courier.

The amendment came into effect on 26 June 2023 subsequent to the Council resolution. The full resolution may be read here and you can view the amended Woollahra Community Participation Plan here.

The public exhibition period ran from Wednesday 26 April 2023 to Friday 26 May 2023.

The Woollahra Community Participation Plan sets out how and when Council will engage with the community on planning matters under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979. It applies to the entire Woollahra Local Government Area.

Development applications are advertised on Council’s website, in letters to nearby owners/residents, and via a physical notice on the subject site.

The amendment does not change the current processes for exhibiting changes to Council’s planning controls.
