What is the planning process?
The planning process in the Glen Innes Severn Council area is governed by the NSW state planning process.
This process is underpinned by a hierarchy of legislation and environmental planning instruments, starting with the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act (EPA) Act 1979. It then steps down to various types of plans including State Environmental Planning Policies, the Glen Innes Local Environmental Plan 2012 and policies such as the Glen Innes Severn Council Development Control Plan (DCP) 2014(PDF, 4MB).
It’s important to note that planning legislation and environmental planning instruments are amended from time to time, so please make sure you’re accessing the most current versions by downloading them directly from the NSW Legislation website.
If you would like more information about the current NSW planning process or the proposed changes to the planning system, visit the Planning and Infrastructure website.
If you wish to make an appeal, a modification or withdraw your application, please contact Councils Development, Planning and Regulatory Services department.
