What is this tool for?
The purpose of this checklist is to assist planners in identifying the information required for five common application types and to efficiently, accurately and consistently write RFIs and assess whether RFIs are needed.
Instructions for use
The tool can be customised to include your common application types, and any additional information required by your council.
Updating text on the checklist tool
The service flow outlines five common application types across all councils. This should be updated by each council to reflect additional common application types, and any information required in your municipality that is not already listed.
You should also add your letterhead or logo/standard headers and footers to identify your council
Where should the checklist be available
This tool is an internal facing document intended to assist planners with writing RFIs. The checklist should be saved within council’s internal systems, in an easily accessible location.

- Customise the tool to reflect your common application types, and any additional information required in your council
