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) Canary Island Date Palm from Southern boundary - this tree is planted in an unsuitable location and has insufficient space to develop as it is encroaching onto and damaging the applicant’s and neighbouring properties. Remove three (3) Honey Locusts from NE boundary - These trees are unsuitable & unsustainable in their location, there is insufficient space for them to flourish and mature in good health and vigour. As they grow they will continue to damage the boundary enclosure, fence line and pavers. Remove four (4) Box Elders from rear of property – these trees are unsuitable & unsustainable along the fence line that they are damaging. These trees have been poorly pruned and now have pockets of decay. Remove two (2) Hackberries from the front of the property – These trees are on Council’s exempt species list and can be removed.
