The City of Hobart has introduced new fees to better account for the costs associated with assessing and re-advertising amended planning applications.
The City of Hobart has for some time allowed applicants to amend planning applications – under the same planning application number, rather than withdrawing the application and submitting a new one – after that application’s public advertising period and officer assessment. While this option will continue to be offered in 2019/20, new fees to better account for the costs associated with re-assessing and re-advertising such amended planning applications have been introduced.
For any planning application submitted after 1 July 2019, a re-assessment fee equivalent to 100% of the application’s original assessment fee will be charged for all amended/redesigned proposals submitted under the same planning application number.
Also, if the amended/redesigned proposal requires advertising under section 57 of the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993, and representations were received when the application was originally advertised, re-advertising fees will be charged as outlined below to help account for the costs of advising representors:
Number of representations received during previous public advertising period and associated re-advertising fee:
101 and over $1200
