and operation of the controlled plant in compliance with the Development and Planning Act 1974 and the
Building Act 1988. Required approvals from other appropriate Government Departments must also be secured
prior to the operation of the plant.
Please submit the completed form together with the application fees at the top right of this form per plant to
