Review of Complying Development in Greenfield Areas

Review of Complying Development in Greenfield Areas – EDO NSW submission

July 2017 – Download submission

The NSW government is proposing to increase delivery of new housing by allowing complying development applications to be made for new dwellings in greenfield areas. Our submission identifies five key issues with using streamlined development assessment in greenfield areas:

  • Potential inconsistencies between the policy and legislative objectives
  • Environmentally sensitive areas
  • Concerns with private certification
  • Cumulative impacts and strategic planning
  • Coordination with related SEPP and Code reforms
