The Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (the EP&A Act) and Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000 (the EP&A Regulation) sets out the statutory requirements for infrastructure funding contributions collection and use in NSW.
The Department is proposing amendments to the EP&A Regulation to improve transparency in the infrastructure contributions system through better reporting of contributions received and expended for individual contributions plans and planning agreements. Amendments are also proposed to streamline contributions plan-making requirements following IPART review and to change references to some council local environmental plans. You can read about the proposed amendments in the documents below:
- Proposed amendments to Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000
- Draft Instrument amending the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000
The proposed changes were on public exhibition from 15 April 2020 until 12 June 2020.
The department is currently reviewing and considering all submissions received.
Your feedback will help inform critical improvements to the infrastructure contributions system in NSW.
