Consultation closed on Development Assessment Rules
5 January 2016
The Planning Act 2016 provides for development assessment as a fundamental part of planning in our state.
A new statutory instrument – the Development Assessment Rules – will set out a standardised development assessment process that will ensure applications are progressed in a consistent and transparent way, in accordance with community expectations.
This new statutory instrument was open for public comment from 24 October to 19 December 2016.
The department is currently reviewing submissions ahead of releasing the final instrument early this year.
