Anyone may make a representation (in favour of or against) a discretionary application during the 14 day exhibition period.  

Representations in writing, must be received before close of the specified exhibition period. 

A representation must relate to the discretionary matter in the Tasmanian Planning Scheme for that application.

The planning authority will advise you of the outcome of your representation and its decision on the permit application.
