Outline Application

An Outline Application is a broad proposal that allows you to test out a proposed land use, plot ratio, or building height of a property before deciding if you want to proceed with a formal application. 

Property owners, prospective buyers (with owner’s consent) and property developers can apply.

Submit and test your proposed development for additions and alterations or new erection of buildings after you know the:

  • Proposed intensity or height is beyond approved control parameters
  • Proposed development does not conform with intended Master Plan land uses

The outline application fee is 50% of the Development Application fee of the formal submission. It cannot be used to offset the application fee when you submit the formal Development Application for planning permission approval.
