        (2)         Upon or at any time after the submission of an application to the local government for approval of the development constituted by a proposed strata scheme in accordance with a local planning scheme or other requirement imposed by law, an application may be made to the local government for a determination that the local government is satisfied, in relation to the proposed development, that —

            (a)         separate occupation of the proposed lots will not contravene the provisions of any local planning scheme in force under the Planning and Development Act 2005 ; and

            (b)         any consent or approval required under any such local planning scheme or under the provisions of the last-mentioned Act relating to any interim development order, has been given in relation to the separate occupation of the proposed lots; and

            (c)         the development of the parcel as a whole, the building and the proposed subdivision of the parcel into lots for separate occupation will not interfere with the existing or likely future amenity of the neighbourhood, having regard to the circumstances of the case and to the public interest.

        (2a)         In making determinations of a kind provided for by this section a local government shall have regard to such considerations as may be prescribed to be relevant to determinations of that kind.

        (3)         A local government may fix, charge and recover fees to be paid for determinations under this section.

        (4)         An applicant for a determination under this section shall provide the local government with such information, particulars and details regarding the proposed development, or the building plans and specifications, as the case may require, as the local government may require to enable it to deal with the application.

        (5)         A determination made by a local government under this section shall be in writing and a favourable determination may be issued subject to conditions relating to the proposed development of the parcel.

        (6)         A determination under this section shall be valid and binding on the local government for a period of 2 years after it is made unless the local government, at the time of the determination, declares in writing that the determination shall be valid and binding for such period as is specified, being a period greater than 2 years but not exceeding 3 years.
