Outcome

In early 2017, the NSW Department of Planning and Environment released a proposed Environmental Planning and Assessment Amendment (ePlanning) Regulation 2017 and associated Secretary’s Requirements for public comment.

A total of 54 submissions were received from a range of councils, industry and community stakeholders, and a summary of the feedback is provided in the Consultation Report – Environmental Planning and Assessment Amendment (ePlanning) Regulation 2017.

In response to the feedback, and user testing of online lodgement systems, the proposed amendment was adjusted to enable online lodgement of complying development applications through the NSW Planning Portal.

The Environmental Planning and Assessment Amendment (ePlanning – Complying Development Certificates) Regulation 2018 was made in June 2018.

Details of the proposals can be found in the resources section below.

About the NSW planning portal

The NSW Planning Portal is an initiative of the New South Wales Government and has been designed to provide public access to a range of planning services and information including documents or other information in the NSW planning database established under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (the EP&A Act).

The NSW planning database is an electronic repository of spatial datasets or other maps that are adopted or incorporated by way of reference by environmental planning instruments, plans or other documents or information relating to the administration of the EP&A Act that are required to be published on the NSW Planning Portal by the regulations or by the Secretary of the Department of Planning and Environment (the Secretary).

The NSW planning database is to be compiled and maintained as determined by the Secretary. The Secretary may certify the form of such documents or other information on the NSW Planning Portal is correct. At this stage, no content on the NSW Planning Portal has been certified by the Secretary.

Spatial datasets

The map viewer on the NSW Planning Portal provides access to spatial datasets for certain planning maps incorporated by reference in environmental planning instruments made under the EP&A Act. PDF versions of the official maps adopted when the instruments are made are available from a map link index from the relevant environmental planning instrument on the NSW legislation website.

The spatial datasets on the NSW Planning Portal are updated as new PDF maps are published. You should be aware that there may be delays between when the official PDF maps are published on the NSW legislation website and when the spatial datasets are updated on the NSW Planning Portal.

The NSW Planning Portal only shows the current In Force spatial datasets. Historical versions of the maps are available from a map link index from the relevant environmental planning instrument on the NSW legislation website.

The spatial datasets for certain State environmental planning policies has been derived from the wording of the text of the instrument.
