Planning Act 2016

The Planning Act 2016 is a new planning act brought in on the 3 July. Though most aspects of the development assessment process are the same, there are some key differences in old and new legislation. The Department of Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning have produced a series of information sheets on the Planning Act 2016 that explain the differences, as well as any new components.
