Grummitt Planning is frequently asked to assist clients who have been issued a Show Cause or Enforcement Notice by Council for purported breaches in Council’s Town Planning regulations. These notices are written such that most recipients are intimidated by potential fines. Our qualified and highly experienced planners can review the notice and advise the best strategy to either obtain an approval from Council, by way of a submission to Council or the lodgement of an application for a development approval, or, alternatively, suggest alternative solutions to remedy the breach or alternate locations for the business activity that will be, or can be, lawful.
