Review of Complying Development for Inland NSW

The NSW Government is proposing to make approvals for low-impact, straightforward building projects easier and faster for homeowners and businesses in rural and regional NSW.

The Department of Planning and Environment invited public comment on the 'A Review of Complying Development for Inland NSW' paper that sets out proposed changes to the State Environment Planning (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008. It intended to:

- simplify complying development controls via a new ‘Inland Code’ for regional and rural areas of NSW west of the Great Dividing Range
- make exempt development controls more flexible for farm buildings and silos in rural zones across the State.

The Inland Code would apply to all residential complying development for 83 local government areas west of the Great Dividing Range.

Thank you for your feedback on the proposals outlined in the 'A Review of Complying Development for Inland NSW Background Paper'.
