Policies

Under Consideration

Design and Place State Environmental Planning Policy (SEPP)

Statewide

We are bringing planning processes up to date and making them easier. The new Design and Place State Environmental Planning Policy (SEPP) is part of a broader review of all our SEPPs and aims to simplify and consolidate how to deliver good design in NSW. 

The Design and Place SEPP puts place and design quality at the forefront of development. Our shared responsibility to care for Country and sustain healthy, thriving communities underpins the policy. The SEPP spans places of all scales, from precincts, significant developments, and buildings to infrastructure and public space. 

Submissions are now closed for the Design and Place SEPP Explanation of Intended Effect (EIE). All public submissions are available for review below.

The final Design and Place SEPP will go on public exhibition later in 2021 to provide more opportunities for feedback. We will also develop supporting guidance and tools alongside the policy. These include a revision to the Apartment Design Guide, improvements to the Building Sustainability Index (BASIX) tool and the development of a new Public Space and Urban Design Guide.
