DRAFT SINGLETON COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION PLAN - FOR DEVELOPMENT APPROVALS AND PLANS FOR GROWTH AND CHANGEDRAFT AMENDED SINGLETON DEVELOPMENT CONTROL PLAN 2014

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.

A Draft CPP has been prepared by Council in accordance with the Direction issued by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment, that council’s must have their CPPs in place by 1 December 2019.

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.
