(1) The aim of this Policy is to encourage:(a) the orderly and economic use and development of land used or intended to be used as a caravan park catering exclusively or predominantly for short-term residents (such as tourists) or for long-term residents, or catering for both, and (b) the proper management and development of land so used, for the purpose of promoting the social and economic welfare of the community, and (c) the provision of community facilities for land so used, and (d) the protection of the environment of, and in the vicinity of, land so used. (2) The strategies by which that aim is to be achieved are:(a) by requiring that development consent be obtained from the local Council for development for the purposes of caravan parks, and (b) by providing that development consent may be granted that will authorise the use of sites for short-term stays (whether or not by tourists) or for long-term residential purposes, or for both, and (c) by requiring that development consent be obtained from the local Council for the subdivision of land for lease purposes under section 289K of the Local Government Act 1919.

This spatial dataset reflects the current planning legislation in NSW in particular the maps and legislation published on the NSW legislation website ( The data production usually occurs in conjunction with the development of the Environmental Planning Instrument (EPI) it is connected to. Original data inputs are produced by Local Government or the Department according to map and data standards developed by the Department and published externally via the website. These data inputs are checked by data and cartographic staff as well as planning staff internally against the map and data standards as well as for accurate content. Once the planning instrument is notified, the input data will be incorporated into the relevant EPI datasets. The quality management processes involved in the data production to this point are routinely screened by internal and external auditors for certification under ISO 9001 - Quality Management Systems. At this point the various datasets are then combined into a new normalised data schema to suit the requirements of the online Planning Viewer. This occurs via various automated ETL processes. Although every care is taken in ETL processes to maintain accuracy sometimes differences between inputs and final normalised data can occur.
