COVID-19: Decision Timelines

Decision timelines

Some decisions may be delayed due to the Government's orders extending time limits on planning matters in the period between 29 March 2020 and 23 May 2020. This period was to be disregarded for the purpose of calculating various time limits under the Planning and Development and other related Acts.

The duration of any such extended period will differ in individual cases. The general principle is that any original time deadline will extend beginning on 23 May 2020 by a period equal to the number of days in the original deadline that fell within the period of 29 March 2020 to 23 May 2020.
