MAJOR DEVELOPMENT (Description here)
Hard copies of the application documentation can be viewed (no charge) or copied (for a fee) at the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure, Level 5, 50 Flinders St, Adelaide during normal business hours. If indicated in the public notice, or by direct correspondence, planning applications within a Council area may also be viewed at their offices during normal business hours. Once public notification has closed, documentation is only available via a Freedom of Information request.
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.
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.
Not all applications are publicly notified. Where they are, the Development Act provides for two kinds of public notification - referred to as Categories.
A Category 2 development is where notice of the application must be given to an owner and/or occupier of adjacent land to where the development is proposed. A person contacted in this way has the right to make a representation which must be taken into consideration by SCAP when assessing the application. Other people not directly notified may still make representations but the Act allows SCAP the discretion as to whether they will be taken into account.
For a Category 3 development, written notice must be given to adjoining owners or occupiers of land and to any other owner or occupier of land which the SCAP believes would be directly affected to a significant degree if the development were to proceed. Notice of a Category 3 development must also be given to the general public by newspaper advertisement.
For either category of notification, representations either objecting to or in support of a particular development application which is being considered by the SCAP must be made to the SCAP and received within 10 business days of the public notice being given.
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’).
The Development Act requires that all written representations received must be forwarded to the applicant who is then entitled to make a response to SCAP. Written submissions to be valid must contain, amongst other things, the name and contact details of the person making the submission. Representations will be included in agenda documentation that is publicly available prior to each meeting, and may be discoverable under the Freedom of Information Act.
