Trending planning applications

Some planning applications attract considerably more community interest than others. In 2016 hundreds of people in the local community opposed the loss of a historic Sydney building. Their efforts succeeded in saving this building, their much loved hotel, due in no small part to their comments on PlanningAlerts.

However you probably would not have heard about this application unless you lived nearby.

Now we bring you the trending applications so you can see what people find most popular or contentious. This page shows you the top 20 recent applications from across Australia that people have made the most comments on.

    Remove one (1) Eucalyptus viminalis from front yard and replace with one (1) native tree. There are large wounds on the trunk and there is evidence of damage caused by Longicorn Beetles and bracket fungus. The tree may live for many years, however, it is unsafe as the trunk or branches may snap at any time at the weakened points. This tree is in decline and showing abnormal growth and appearance, its health will not recover. Remove one (1) dead Canary Island Date Palm from front yard and replace with one (1) native tree.
