NSW Planning reforms: information session in Queanbeyan on 11 December
The New South Wales Government has recently announced plans to streamline local planning processes. The plans include:
Extending the role of private building certifiers;
Regional Planning Councils to deal with larger proposals of regional significance;
Local Councils to focus on development applications worth less than $50 million;
Small development applications (less than $1 million) to be handled through a system of planning arbiters.
Proposals to increase the scope of exempt and complying developments to make it easier to renovate and build new homes.
The Department of Planning will be holding an information session in Queanbeyan on Tuesday 11 December, between 11 am and 1 pm.
The sessions will be held at the Queanbeyan Community Centre, 262 Crawford Street.
