On Exhibition: Conflict of Interests Policy– Dealing with Council-Related Development Throughout the Development Process
Amendments to the Environmental Planning and Assessment (EP&A) Regulation have been made to strengthen the transparency and accountability in the planning system. A draft policy has been prepared in line with the model template provided by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment. The policy applies to all council-related development with exclusion of development applications for temporary uses, ancillary works within road reserves (i.e. driveways, footpaths), ancillary work to public reserves and parks (i.e. amenities buildings, fences, play equipment), tree removal and easements over council land as the legislation allows for no management controls where the risks of a conflict of interest are very low. Council resolved to place the Conflicts of Interests Policy - Dealing with Council-Related Development Throughout The Development Process on public exhibition for a period of 28 days.
