Development tools and advice

Many developments need land use planning or 'development' approval.

The Planning Act 2016 and the Development Assessment Rules (DA Rules) established under the Act provide the framework for assessing development applications.

Our City Planning and Assessment (CPA) group is responsible for this assessment, including administering the Redlands Planning Scheme and the Planning Act 2016. The group is committed to providing professional and efficient planning and development services to you and has adopted the CPA customer service charter [PDF 0.1MB] that outlines it's commitment to this service.

Below you will find links to information on the process for lodging development applications with the Council and how we assess those applications. Contact us if you have any further queries.
