Edition 1
Purpose This Policy aims:(a) to amend the definitions of hazardous and offensive industries where used in environmental planning instruments, and (b) to render ineffective a provision of any environmental planning instrument that prohibits development for the purpose of a storage facility on the ground that the facility is hazardous or offensive if it is not a hazardous or offensive storage establishment as defined in this Policy, and (c) to require development consent for hazardous or offensive development proposed to be carried out in the Western Division, and (d) to ensure that in determining whether a development is a hazardous or offensive industry, any measures proposed to be employed to reduce the impact of the development are taken into account, and (e) to ensure that in considering any application to carry out potentially hazardous or offensive development, the consent authority has sufficient information to assess whether the development is hazardous or offensive and to impose conditions to reduce or minimise any adverse impact, and (f) to require the advertising of applications to carry out any such development.
