The notice must: (a) describe the nature of the proposed development (b) identify the land concerned in the application (c) state whether it is an application for a non–complying development and indicate: • where the application may be examined • the time when the application may be examined • the person to whom the representation should be sent • the time within which any representation should be lodged.
