Where a development has the potential to affect surrounding properties, the City will undergo a consultation process. Comments received through that process are taken into account when making a decision on the development.

The City’s Planning Policy P301 Community Engagement in Planning Proposals provides guidance on the geographic extent, method and duration of the required consultation for various kinds of planning proposals. The Policy also provides advice to submitters on the extent to which their comments may contribute to the City’s decision-making process.
