Focus for 2020-21

In 2020-21 we're working to create a shared understanding of good design. We're also piloting a competitive design process for a capital work project.

This year Council will explore the creation of Design Awards and focus on building internal capacity to create a shared understanding about good design. Council is also piloting a competitive design process for one of its own capital work project.

Additionally, Council will be strengthening its pre-application meeting process and strongly encourages applicants with developments of 10 or more dwellings to organise a pre-app meeting. This is a great opportunity to discuss the appropriate design outcomes for the site at an early stage and will provide more certainty to applicants.

Visit the pre-application advice page for more information.
