The updated regulation is easier to navigate and understand with the NSW Planning Portal regulation sections guide tool.

New EP&A Regulation 2021 Sections Guide

The new Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2021 (EP&A Regulation 2021) has restructured the provisions to make them easier to navigate.

The table below lists the clauses of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000 (2000 Regulation) and the corresponding sections in the EP&A Regulation 2021. Provisions are now referred to as ‘sections’ in the EP&A Regulation 2021, whereas reference to provisions in the 2000 Regulation remain as ‘clauses’. You can also view the changes in the Sections Guide for the EP&A Regulation 2021.

Clauses in the 2000 Regulation related to building certification, subdivision, and fire safety provisions have been transferred to the Environmental Planning and Assessment (Development Certification and Fire Safety) Regulation 2021.

Where “N/A” appears in the second column, this may be because of policy changes that mean the clause is no longer required, the provision may have been superseded by new provisions, or it has no direct equivalent because of restructuring and drafting changes.

Stakeholders are encouraged to update their forms and templates to reflect the new numbering.
