Changes to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979
The Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 has been updated by NSW Planning and Environment, and most changes came into effect 1 March 2018. The amendments change the structure of the Act and therefore the references to various clauses in the Act listed on Council's forms have changed. For example, a Section 96 modification is now known as a Section 4.55 modification, though the content of that clause is largely unaltered. Most requirements for lodging applications or the actual requirements on those forms are largely unchanged.
