Section 86 of the Planning Act allows the currency period of an approval to be extended at any time before the development approval lapses. To do this, an extension application must be made to the assessment manager, be accompanied by the required fee and where relevant, the owner's consent.
Referral agencies are not required to be involved or advised about the extension application before it has been decided..
Applications for an extension to the currency period can be submitted using an Applicant notice about making an extension application form and can be submitted electronically be email to firstname.lastname@example.org by post at PO Box 887, Innisfail Qld 4860 or over the counter at Council's Tully or Innisfail offices.
For any further enquiries about making an extension application or to obtain advice regarding payment of the relevant fee, please contact Planning Services by email at email@example.com of Ph: (07) 4030 2241.
