Overall Development Plans prior to proceeding with Planning Permit Applications for subdivision. Further, BPD will prepare all the documentation required by the Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) and Council, where a Planning Scheme amendment is necessary for a development to proceed; i.e. rezoning, removing the whole or part of an overlay etc.
