Draft State Environmental Planning Policy (Education Establishments and Child Care Facilities) 2017

Draft State Environmental Planning Policy (Education Establishments and Child Care Facilities) 2017 – EDO NSW submission

April 2017 – Download PDF

The NSW Government has proposed a new State Environmental Planning Policy (SEPP) to assess and approve childcare and education facilities (schools, universities, TAFE). The new Education SEPP would remove existing development controls from the Infrastructure SEPP.

Our submission addresses issues relating to:

  • Education facilities generally (including concerns about exempt tree-clearing up to 2 hectares and ‘minimal environmental impact’ requirements)
  • Childcare centres
  • Schools (Design Quality Principles and need for independent oversight of Part 5 assessments)
  • Universities
  • TAFE centres.

We have made a separate submission on the 10-year review of the Infrastructure SEPP.
