Whitsunday Regional Council Mayor Jennifer Whitney said the Council’s town planning “QuickHits” team should be commended for slashing approval times for development applications.
Mayor Whitney said the “Quick Hits” team have been turning low-risk domestic scale development applications around in significantly reduced timeframes, between 5-10 business days.
“This is a great reflection of the hard work Council’s planning team have been carrying out to take our customer service to the next level,” Mayor Whitney said.
“We have received very positive feedback from developers and planners in the Whitsundaycommunity who are very happy with the quick turnaround for their development applications.
“Our town planning team should be commended on implementing this innovative process andperforming these tasks above the statutory requirements.
“At the end of the day, this is all about Council assisting developers and builders to get on withtheir job and help stimulate the building industry and local economy,” she said.
Mayor Whitney said the “Quick Hits” team is just one of a number of initiatives Council is putting in place which are resulting in significant improvements in the customer focussed DevelopmentAssessment Unit.
