Repeal of two operational SEPPs

The Department of Planning and Environment is reviewing State Environmental Planning Policies (SEPPs) to simplify and modernise the planning system by removing duplicated, redundant and outdated planning controls.

The Department proposes to improve and simplify NSW development standards by repealing SEPP No. 1 - Development Standards and SEPP (Miscellaneous Consent Provisions) 2007 (MCP SEPP). The planning provisions contained in these two policies will be incorporated in local planning controls. Both SEPPs now only apply to lands which have been deferred from the Standard Instrument Local Environmental Plan.

Councils that have adopted the Standard Instrument Local Environmental Plan already have the equivalent measures in place within their areas.

This means local controls will essentially replace the function of the repealed SEPPs. The Department of Planning and Environment will work with affected councils to manage the transition of planning provisions into their Local Environmental Plans.

Engagement is closed and feedback is now under consideration. Submissions are available below.
