What is this status?
Validating is an Authority status, where the Authority can complete the preliminary assessment of the development application and request further action of the Applicant if required.
The software automatically populates the relevant Applicant development application information and material into a customised workflow. The software filters out the irrelevant applicant information, allowing the Authority to focus on their preliminary assessment of the application.
