On the 1 July 2018, amendments to Part 2 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (EP&A Act 1979) introduced requirements for relevant planning authorities (which includes Councils), to prepare a Community Participation Plan (CPP) that explains how and when they will undertake community participation when exercising their planning functions under the EP&A Act 1979.
The consultation requirements of the CPP would supersede the consultation requirements contained in Part 5 of Singleton Development Control Plan 2014 (DCP 2014). As such, the consultation provisions in the Singleton DCP 2014 would be removed upon adoption of a final CPP to avoid any potential for conflicting provisions.
Your submission must reach Singleton Council by close of business on 26 September 2019 and should be addressed to:
The General Manager
PO Box 314, Singleton NSW 2330
