Once approved they are approved.
If you do not comply with the time, the approval can lapse.
You should not have had to relodge the approval again if the approval was valid.
If they are still valid all you have to do is go to QCAT and get the extension that council has refused. If it is not still valid then you have to start again.
If they are refusing to allow the extension, you will need to take the matter to QCAT

If the original decision took all the variables into account and passed it then is it valid. You have to fight it.
