Have your say on proposed Housekeeping Amendment to the State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008 (Codes SEPP)

We’re continuously monitoring the Codes SEPP to ensure it is effectively reducing red tape, costs and delays for low impact exempt and complying development.

Exempt development allows for minor and low-impact building works or home renovations to be carried out without needing planning or building approval. Complying development is a fast-track approval for straightforward development that complies with the development standards in the Codes SEPP and includes new homes, home renovations, new industrial buildings and changes to shops and commercial buildings. 

The proposed housekeeping amendment will simplify and improve the policy, clarify definitions and standards, and address other minor technical matters raised by stakeholders.

The amendment will make it easier for homeowners and businesses to use the Codes SEPP, saving them time and money.

Have your say

We encourage your feedback on the Explanation of Intended Effect and encourage you to have your say until 18 July 2018.

Deborah Brill
