2. If you decide to make a submission:
(a) Make your submission in writing addressed to the General Manager;
(b) State your name, address and the development application number.  Submissions and comments where the writer is anonymous may not be considered;
(c) There is no obligation for you to make a submission to Council.  However should you have a view that you wish to bring to Council’s attention, this is your opportunity.  If objecting to a development proposal, you should clearly state your reasons, and if possible, make positive suggestions as to what, if any, solutions you feel would be appropriate;
(d) Sign the submission;
(e) Send your submission to Warrumbungle Shire Council, PO Box 191, Coonabarabran NSW 2357, to reach us by 4:00pm on the expiry date.
(f) Email submissions and comments will be received up to 4.00pm on the expiry date. Email submissions should be followed by a short letter confirming email and signed by the person making submission. 
3. Any person who makes a written submission objecting to or supporting a relevant planning application or any development proposal made to council is required to disclose the following reportable political donations and gifts (if any) made by the person making the submission or any associate of that person within the period commencing two years before the submission is made and ending when the application is determined:
•  all reportable political donations made to any local councillor of that council, and
•  all gifts made to any local councillor or employee of that council.
A reference to a reportable political donation made to a ‘local councillor’ includes a reference to a donation made at the time the person was a candidate for election to the council.
Further information on reportable political donations and gifts and disclosure forms are available on the Department of Planning website at www.planning.nsw.gov.au
4. If the matters raised are not related to this application or unsustainable in the light of the relevant legislation relating to assessment of the application or they can be addressed by conditional approval, no contact will be made with you by Council staff during the assessment phase.  Typical matters raised in submissions which are NOT taken into account with the assessment are: devaluation of property, dividing fence issues, previous nuisances, existing surface water problems (if not exacerbated by the proposed development) and presumed unauthorised future use or activity.
5. Council staff may contact you if matters are not clear or access to your property is necessary. Generally, the merits or otherwise of your submission are not debated. Otherwise, no further contact is made until after determination.
6. Objections raised are referred to the applicant for comment prior to determination. Copies of submissions will be referred to the applicant.
7. After a decision is made, Council will notify those who have made written submissions.
8. Applications may ultimately be determined by a Council meeting rather than under the delegated authority of Council staff.  
9. All submissions, including personal information, will generally be made available for public inspection and may be included in full in any reports to Council, Government Agencies or other relevant bodies in the determination of the application.  
There are some exceptions including:
•         matters not considered to be in the public interest in accordance with the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 ('the GIPA Act').
PLEASE NOTE: Should you consider that disclosure of your information would result in detriment to you, the words “OBJECTION IN CONFIDENCE” must be clearly stated at the top of the submission.  Council may also be obliged to release the full details of the submission, including your name and address, under the provisions of the GIPA Act, even if these words are used on the submission.
