I am pleased to announce that the notice of motion was passed down via council last night.
Please see the notes below.
(A) Council note:
(i) development proposal site notices must be clearly displayed on each site;
(ii) the method of displaying development proposal site notices usually involves laminating the document to protect it from weather;
(iii) the site notice is secured to a wall or fence so it is fixed in place and single sided;
(iv) on each development proposal site notice there is an instruction “on the back of this page we have included information to help you make a submission”. This instruction to turn over the site notice for additional information is impossible for the public to do; and
(v) Information about making submission on the development proposals is included on the back of notification letters (the same as site notices) sent to the community and is available on the City’s webpage for each DA.
(B) the Chief Executive Officer be requested to:
(i) investigate the removal of the line “on the back of this page we have included information to help you make a submission” on single-sided site notices;
(ii) investigate the possibility of the inclusion of a QR Code or other appropriate technology for each DA Site Notice to connect online directly with the relevant DA Site Notice and the information that would be available on the back page of the notice; and
(iii) report back to Council via the CEO Update.
