From 26 April 2023, in a document (other than a state environmental planning policy) a reference to a former zone under an environmental planning instrument is taken to include a reference to a new zone under the environmental planning instrument. Note: Document means an Act, statutory or other instrument, contract or agreement, and includes a document issued or made under or for the purposes of an Act or statutory or other instrument.
We will continue to apply the Sutherland Development Control Plan 2015 based on the former zones until it is updated to reflect the new employment zones. There are temporary savings and transitional provisions applying to development which would be prohibited by the new zones. For more information see NSW Department of Planning and Environment Employment zones reform.
