NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment – ISEPP Amendment

The department has developed a range of amendments related to health services facilities in the Infrastructure SEPP that aim to facilitate broader planning pathways for infrastructure such as community health centres, consulting rooms and ambulance facilities.

The scope of the proposed amendment extends to development with consent, development without consent, complying development and exempt development provisions within the Infrastructure SEPP.

The updated provisions will ensure environmental assessment is appropriate relative to the impacts of the development, whilst also helping to deliver essential social infrastructure in a timely manner to the direct benefit of the people of NSW.

Have your say by 17 December 2020.
