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.

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 tree, located in the front yard, on the front boundary. This tree is planted within 50cm of the gas main and is pressing up against the pipes. Tree presents an unacceptable level of risk of damage to property and could fail. The tree has caused the gas pipe to rupture which caused a fire and the brick fence had to be removed to carry out the repairs to the gas line. The roots system was cut in the repairs and has exposed the roots, there is the potential for the tree to fail and fall over, making this an urgent removal for the safety of residents and the owners.
