Certain amendments to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 No 203 (Act) will commence on 1 March 2018.
The Environmental Planning and Assessment (Amendment) Act 2017 No 60 makes changes of substance to the Act and, as a consequence, the Act has been renumbered in a decimal format. For example, Section 149 Planning Certificates will become Section 10.7 Certificates and Section 149A Building Certificates will be issued under Section 6.26.
Council is committed to updating all relevant documents in a timely manner. This will include planning instruments, applications, approvals, orders, certificates, forms and other associated documents in both printed and electronic versions.
Shoalhaven City Council is required to implement these changes and regrets any inconvenience caused to the local business, industry and the community.
