Planning power reverts to councils and other authorities

Part 3A of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 is being repealed

The State Government will be repealing Part 3A of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 situation which limited the role of councils, communities and environmental authorities by requiring the Minister for Planning to approve ‘major projects’. Applications under that section were stopped on 4 April 2011 and the requirement that the Minister approve such applications will soon be removed, reverting to the former situation for councils, communities and environmental authorities.
