How to make a representation

The Development Act 1993 provides – in certain circumstances - individuals and groups the right to make both written and verbal submissions setting out their views on a development application. These people are known as ‘representors’. Where the SCAP is the decision making body, it receives such submissions and conducts hearings for representors and applicants.

Making written submissions

Written comments must set out the reasons for your representation and will be taken into consideration by SCAP when it makes a decision (for Category 2 and 3 developments) or provides a recommendation (to the Minister for Planning on Crown applications). Your written representation must indicate if you or a representative wishes to appear before SCAP to further explain your views. Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act 1991 and Development Act 1993 any information provided may become part of a public document.

Written representations can be posted, hand-delivered, faxed or emailed to SCAP.

Representations received after the close date are not required to be considered.

Categories of development

Not all applications are publicly notified. When they are, the Development Act 1993 provides for two kinds of public notification - referred to as Category 2 and Category 3.

For either Category, representations can be made either objecting to or in support of a development application which is being considered by the SCAP.

Category 2

A Category 2 development requires, as per the Development Regulations 2008:

  • notice of the application to be given to an owner/occupier of adjacent land to where the development is proposed.

A person contacted in this way has the right to make a written representation to the SCAP. Representations from those with a right to be heard must be taken into consideration by SCAP when assessing the development application. The representation must:

  • include the person’s name and address
  • set out the reasons for the representation
  • be lodged within 10 days after notice of the application

Persons that made a written representation are able to attend the SCAP hearing.  Where a representor has indicated in their representation they wish to be heard, the SCAP has discretion about whether a representor may speak to their representation at the hearing.

Category 3

A Category 3 development requires, as per the Development Regulations 2008:

  • written notice of the application to be given to an owner/occupier of adjacent land to where the development is proposed
  • written notice of the application to be given to any owner/occupier of land which the SCAP believes would be directly affected to a significant degree if the development were to proceed
  • notice by newspaper advertisement to be given to the general public

A person contacted in this way has the right to make a written representation to the SCAP. Representations from those with a right to be heard must be taken into consideration by SCAP when assessing the development application. The representation must:

  • include the person’s name and address
  • set out the reasons for the representation
  • be lodged within 10 days after notice of the application

Persons that made a written representation are able to attend the SCAP hearing.  Where a representor has indicated in their representation they wish to be heard they may speak to their representation at the hearing.

Crown development

For Crown developments (lodged under s.49 / s.49A of the Development Act 1993), where the proposal has a development cost exceeding $4 million, a notice is published in a local newspaper advising of the type of development and its location. For these applications a longer period of time is provided for representations to be received (which must not be less than fifteen (15) business days from the date of notification). If a representor indicates a wish to be heard by the SCAP, they must be heard.

More detail on the rights and responsibilities of parties, and how the SCAP receives submissions and conducts public hearings on applications is available in a separate brochure (‘SCAP hearings’).

Submissions and Privacy

SCAP is required by the Development Regulations 2008 to make publicly available all application documents and information forming part of the assessment of an application for Category 2 or 3 developments that are to be determined by the SCAP; or determined by staff under delegated authority.

The Development Act 1993 requires the decision maker (the SCAP or staff working under delegated authority) to send copies of all representations received to the applicant for the development approval so that the applicant has an opportunity to respond to the representations. This means that all information you lodge as part of your representation, including your name and address, will be given to the applicant. If you have any concerns over the confidentiality or security content of such documents or information, you should discuss these matters with a member of the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure’s planning staff prior to lodging your representation.

Please also be aware that your representation may be discoverable under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act 1991; may be uploaded onto the SCAP’s website as an attachment to the report item in the Agenda for the SCAP meeting scheduled to hear the development application; and may also be available to other bodies or government agencies pursuant to the Development Act 1993.
