Find out how new planning rules will affect you


Find out how the state government's new Planning and Design Code will affect you and your neighbourhood.

The State Planning Commission has developed the draft Planning and Design Code (the Code) which will replace each council's Development Plan and will set out the rules that determine what landowners can do on their land.

These new rules will bring significant change to the way new development proposals are handled and the type / scale of development that is allowed in your suburb.

Right now is your opportunity to consider and question what impact the new system is likely to have on you and your neighbourhood before the planning reforms become operational.
