What is the"Circulation" phase of the Planning process?

Planning approval, or development approval, assesses land or property's proposed use, activity, or development. The planning approval process is comprehensive because the planning approval usually may concern the impacts of the proposed land use, on-site activities, or development upon the surrounding land uses and neighboring properties. The target of the planning approval process is to ensure that the whole is in harmony with surrounding uses.

The "Circulation" phase comes after the Applicant has submitted the planning approval application to the local government authority in Cloudpermit. 

The local government authority evaluates each planning approval application. If the nature of the planning approval application requires consultation from the other stakeholders, the authority will start a "circulation process" in Cloudpermit.

The local government authority has configured the required circulation instances into Cloudpermit. Usually, they include fire, gas, and electricity departments or conservation authorities. These instances must consider the planning change's impacts on the municipality's infrastructure before the local government authority may continue with the approval process. 

The local government authority creates a "circulation request" to the respective department or, if needed, many departments using the same circulation request form in Cloudpermit. The responsible authority of each department receives an email notification regarding the pending circulation request. 

After the circulation completion, the responsible authority of the department provides a report to the Applicant in Cloudpermit. The Applicant receives an email notification after the report has been saved in the application.
