Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (NSW) - Level 3

View Legislation

An Act to institute a system of environmental planning and assessment for NSW. Prior to development taking place in NSW, a development application (DA) must be lodged with the relevant authority describing the intended work. The application is lodged with the relevant consent authority and then assessed against State, Regional and Local planning controls to ensure the work is environmentally sustainable. The level of assessment is determined by relevant planning legislation. Where a development application is issued to the University or parties contracted by the University, all conditions of the approved development application must be adhered to.
