Pre-Gateway Review of Local Environmental Plan amendment requests
What is a Pre-Gateway Review (PGR)?
The Pre-Gateway Review (PGR) process is the process for determining whether or not to prepare a planning proposal to seek an amendment to a Local Environmental Plan (LEP) based on a formal request initiated by a land owner.

Council PGR Process
In 2015, Singleton Council initiated the local PGR process for owner-initiated proposals to amend the LEP for the Singleton Local Government Area (LGA). The local PGR process enabled implementation of an online tracking system for PGR applications and improves Council's ability to provide timely advice to proponents on whether preparation of a planning proposal is supported. The PGR system also improved the level of transparency associated with LEP amendment requests by providing better online information about individual LEP amendment proposals.

NSW State Government PGR Process
The NSW Department of Planning & Environment also implements a Pre-Gateway Review (PGR) process, whereby proponents can seek a review independent from Council in circumstances where Council:
  • Has notified the proponent that the LEP changes are not supported; or
  • Has failed to make a decision on whether to support the preparation of a planning proposal within 90 days.
