I am working with the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment on model conditions of development consent for residential development. This element of the DA process is a long-standing interest of mine, featuring in the various DA process reviews that I have been involved with. They have also featured in my certifier training activites, as that crucial interface with development consents.
This project has been in progress since 2018, engaging with councils and other stakeholders. Draft conitions have been prepared. This stage will refine the draft conditions, address some other development types and consider implementation issues . Further engagement with councils, certifiers and other stakeholders (being undertaken by Eltons) will feed the review: a webinar, survey, workshops and pilot program. In addition, guidelines are being prepared by Tara Madden (of Topdeck).
