Newcastle City Council Review of Standard Conditions

Fri, 2023-08-18 12:59 -- Danny Wiggins

In response to the State Government requirement for all councils to redraft and reformat their standard/ bespoke conditions of consent, Newcatle's 300+ existing conditions were reworded and re-located (with a title and reason for each), to follow the Department of Planning and Environment's Guidelines and Toolkit, in preparation for storage and access through the NSW Planning Portal. A challenging and rewarding exercise, in particular because the reform builds upon my work in this area through approval reform and certification training – in most cases it is the building and subdivision certifiers who must deal with conditions in satisfying development consents.
