Community Participation Plan

The Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 as amended requires all councils of NSW to prepare a Community Participation Plan. This plan details how Council will undertake community participation when exercising planning functions, such as preparing a Local Environmental Plan or assessing a Development Application, under the Act.

The NSW Government has amended a number of Acts and issued Ministerial Orders to implement emergency measures as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the changes is that councils will not be required to display physical copies of planning documents at council facilities. These are now to be made available online through the NSW Planning Portal. A notation has been made inside the Community Participation Plan to alert the public to this change as the changes were effective immediately.
