Development control

Development control fulfils our legal responsibility for determining minerals and waste development planning applications outside the two national parks, and our own development.

We are responsible for:

  • Preparing statutory land use plans;
  • Dealing with all planning applications for minerals, such as quarries and oil and gas sites, and waste  - landfill and recycling - developments and our own development, such as schools, libraries, and highways; and
  • Monitoring, compliance and enforcement of planning matters associated with minerals and waste sites and our own development proposals.
