On 19 December 2013, the NSW Minister for Planning and Infrastructure announced a range of changes to the streamlined development approvals system, which:

  • Give more home owners and businesses access to streamlined approvals for low impact development, like building or renovating a home, or a new commercial or industrial premises
  • Give greater flexibility to councils to vary statewide rules to reflect local circumstances
  • Provide additional requirements for neighbours to be informed about proposals
  • Strengthen rules relating to privacy, protection of significant trees and earthworks to minimise impacts on neighbours and the environment

The changes will commence on 22 February 2014
