Collie recently assisted the client in obtaining town planning approval for the development of a first floor office space addition to a property in the Diamond Creek town centre.
Although only a small project, the interesting aspect was that it was dealt with under VicSmart and resulted in a planning permit being issued in ten days.
Collie advised the client early in the process that the application qualified for assessment under the VicSmart pathway. The benefits of this pathway included:.
- the ten-day permit process;
- the application not requiring advertising;
- that information to be submitted with an application is pre-set;
- reduced application fee compared to standard planning permit applications.
