Pre-DA meetings

For Armidale Dumaresq residents planning officers are available by appointment to discuss any proposed development or specific questions you might have.  Early consultation in the design process can bring to light many issues that may inform your final design.  Council officers are available for pre-DA meetings on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 10am – 12pm and 2pm – 4pm.

Please select your preferred time on the Pre-Da form. Please complete the Pre-DA booking form and forward to Council. You will be contacted by the Planning section to confirm a meeting time.
Please provide the following information with your booking form:

a rough sketch or plan of your proposal to help focus the discussion
a clear outline of what development you wish to do on the site
notes of any specific issues you are aware of  or questions you may have
Large  scale developments will often involve a range of issues.

You may benefit by other officers attending such as a Building Surveyor, a Development Engineer, or an Environmental Health Officer.  If you are aware of specific issues that may require another officer, please advise at the time of booking.  We may also contact you if we think another officer needs to attend.

Please note: It is not necessary to confirm the appointment on the day.
