Transport Canberra and City Services Christmas Shutdown Periods


Transport Canberra and City Services (TCCS) has provided advice to help members manage submission lodgements prior to their Christmas Shutdown period.

All Design, Operational and Final Acceptance submissions for urban infill and Estate developments will continue to follow the 20 working days turnaround times as per usual.

Exceptions to turnaround times for all other submissions are as per below:

  1. Operational Acceptance (OA) submissions** which include playgrounds, barbeques, bins, bubblers, and other contract/programmed maintenance items should be lodged with DRAA by COB Friday 10 November 2023.
  2. Consolidation Commencement (CC) submissions should be lodged prior to COB Friday 24 November 2023.
  3. Soft Landscape Handover (SLH) submissions** should be lodged with DRAA by COB Friday 17 November 2023.
  4. Estate Development Plans (EDP) should be lodged prior to COB Friday 17 November 2023. EDP submissions not lodged prior to this cut-off date will not be considered for review until Monday 8 January 2024.
  5. Building Application (BA) submissions should be lodged by COB Friday 8 December 2023.

**(The above scheduling is to ensure the timely handover of assets and to allow sufficient time to arrange the inclusion of these elements on the maintenance programme of TCCS and their contractors)

Submissions received after the above cut-off dates and through to COB Friday 5 January 2024 will be noted as received on Monday 8 January 2024 and turnaround times will be calculated accordingly.

Standard turnaround times for responses will apply from Monday 8 January 2024.

TCCS will make every effort to meet the target dates, however this may be subject to the volume of submissions received (particularly in the two weeks prior to Christmas Shutdown) and the resource capacity availability. You will be notified accordingly should TCCS not be able to meet the targets.
