Community participation plan

We encourage meaningful and effective community participation in planning.

Community participation plan front cover


  • We firmly believe the community has a right to be informed about planning matters that affect them. Wherever possible, we encourage opportunities for meaningful and effective community participation in planning.
  • Our community participation plan outlines our community participation requirements under planning legislation. It’s designed to make it clearer and easier for you to understand how to participate in planning decisions.
  • The plan details minimum public exhibition timeframes and notification procedures for strategic and statutory planning matters. It covers:
    • development applications
    • planning proposals
    • contributions plan
    • draft development control plans
    • planning agreements
    • environmental impact assessments.
  • The community participation plan only deals with planning matters. It applies across our whole local area and replaces schedule 1 of the Sydney Development Control Plan 2012.
