Amendment to Seniors Housing SEPP
Draft State Environmental Planning Policies
What’s this about?
The proposed new rules are discussed in the Explanation of Intended Effect.
Development for seniors housing is allowed under State Environmental Planning Policy (Housing for Seniors or People with a Disability) 2004 (Seniors SEPP), subject to a set of specified prerequisites and in certain circumstances a Site Compatibility Certificate (SCC).
A change has been proposed to the state policy governing housing for seniors and people with a disability about the use of SCCs.
The proposed amendment of the Seniors SEPP addresses the issue of incremental expansion of land for housing through SCCs.
