Council also provides a consultation service designed to advise Applicants on the responsibilities of all participants in the Application Approval process and to ensure that the information Applicants have available is sufficient to perform an effective assessment

Whilst we strongly suggest that this service be utilised by Applicants, there will be some instances where a simple phone call will suffice. Requesting a consultation will allow Council to determine what action to take for your specific application. If you choose to request a consultation now, these details will be linked directly to your final Application Lodgement

Enables prospective applicants to obtain written advice from Council on any matter that requires planning approval prior to the submission of a formal planning application.
A Planning Officer will carry out a basic assessment of the proposal against the Melton Planning Scheme requirements, and will also consult with other relevant Council departments which may have an interest in the proposal to identify any design issues that need to be resolved, or if any additional information is required to be submitted to enable quicker consideration of a planning application.
It provides the opportunity for applicants to receive guidance and direction on a proposal and for issues to be identified at an early stage.
