Sunshine Coast residents encouraged to seek help with development applications
Residential property owners on Queensland's Sunshine Coast may wish to take advantage of local council services if they are thinking about making a development application.
Julie Edwards, director of development services at Sunshine Coast Council, asserted that regardless of the size or scale of the project, the local authority is onhand to help.
The most-demanded services, she explained, are meetings with professional officers, counter enquiries, requests for written advice and pre-lodgement meetings.
"We have a range of services available and we want people to know that they can contact [the] council at any stage for information and assistance," she said.
Edwards added that there are a number of ways people can get in touch for more assistance or for answers to questions - including visiting the Sunshine Coast Council website, visiting staff in person or calling the dedicated planning number.
Development services staff are available in the Nambour, Caloundra and Tewantin offices, as well as the main council offices at 10 First Avenue in Maroochydore.
Earlier this week, Sunshine Coast Council issued a reminder that its customer contact centres will be closed on Friday April 6 and Monday April 9 due to the Easter weekend.
