Dear Mr Bell,
I refer to the above application and your emails requesting an extension to submit concerns.
An extension for anyone wishing to submit to the application is fine and I can provide 14 days from today to do so. Please ensure you submit any additional concerns by 23 October 2012. Assessment of the application will not be conducted before this date. Should your neighbours contact Council, Im happy to indicate this to them also.
Despite the above, the original notification has been conducted in line with Council's Notification Policy. On this basis, I cannot justify another formal notification and advertising period being conducted.
In relation to the site notice, I have asked the Officer who deals with site notices to check and replace if required. While the official notification period indicated on the sign will have concluded, I will ask it be left up to inform those who have not had oportunity to view as yet.
