Have you submitted a development application to Byron Shire Council? Or have you been involved in the development assessment and building process?

Was it easy dealing with Council or did you find it difficult or challenging?

As part of a review of our Development Services Council is looking for feedback on your experiences and any suggestions you may have around development assessment and the associated approvals processes.

The intention of the eSymposium is to:

  • Share past experiences (including what has worked well and what hasn’t)
  • Review current requirements, processes, fees and charges;
  • Consider and recommend efficiencies;
  • Investigating innovative or different processes implemented elsewhere;
  • Share challenges and difficulties arising from requirements from higher levels of Government (ie. State Government).

The whole community is invited to get involved and provide feedback on our services, your experiences and any suggestions you may have around development assessment and the associated approvals processes. We're looking to hear from everyone - consultants, 'mum & dad' applicants, builders, certifiers, plumbers, anyone who has a story to tell or is interested in helping us to improve what we do.

A brief overview of Development Assessment in NSW and Council's Certification program is provided below.


What you can do?

  • Take a Survey on your experiences submitting development applications or building certification certificates.
  • Visit our Guest book and give us feedback on your past experiences - the good, the bad or the ugly.
  • Go to the Ideas board and leave your ideas - no matter how far-fetched, on how we can do it better.

Our eSymposium will run until the end of the year. The results will be reported to Council and where relevant, used to improve our services.
