Responding to government proposals
The national, State and local governments regularly invite input from the community on proposed changes to environmental laws.
- To comment on draft plans and policies regulating building and development, visit the NSW Department of Planning and Environment's website. The types of plans and policies made can include strategic planning for certain regions, draft legislation, plans for infrastructure precincts, and industry policies. The public can submit comments to the Department of Planning and Infrastructure. To read more about plans and policies, see our Fact Sheet on LEPs and SEPPs.
- To comment on draft Local Environmental Plans (LEPs), contact your local council – these will usually be advertised on their website. There is also a LEP tracking system on the NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure’s website where you can track the progress of the LEP-making process. To read more about LEPs, see our Fact Sheet on LEPs and SEPPs.
