What is a lodgement interview
Lake Macquarie City Council's lodgement interview service is required for the lodgement of all medium and major application types.
The lodgement interview will afford the applicant a defined time to lodge an application. The interview time will generally be one hour.
What happens at a lodgement interview
Using your development planning checklist, a Council Officer will assess the completeness of your application to ensure you have provided the following:
- all required plans
- a Statement of Environmental Effects
- all required specialist reports
- owners consent
- required fees (including integrated referral cheques if required).
Should the Council Officer consider your application to be incomplete, the application will not be lodged and you will be provided with a list of outstanding information that you must address prior to lodgement.
