Remediation of Land SEPP

Topic: Planning

The Department of Planning and Environment invites feedback on the draft Remediation of Land SEPP and planning guidelines.

Remediation SEPP have your say

What’s this about?

For almost 20 years, the State Environmental Planning Policy (SEPP) for the Remediation of Land  and the existing guidelines have provided the planning framework for the management of contaminated land in NSW.

Guidelines and an Explanation of Intended Effect (EIE) for a new SEPP have been prepared.

The EIE sets out how the proposed SEPP will:

  • provide a state-wide planning framework for land remediation
  • require consent authorities to consider the potential for land to be contaminated when determining development applications
  • clearly list the remediation works that require development consent
  • introduce certification and operational requirements for remediation works that can be undertaken without development consent.

Have your say

There are two ways you can provide feedback:

  • Online: consultation website
  • Mail: Director, Housing Approvals and Policy
    Department of Planning and Environment
    GPO Box 39
    Sydney NSW 2000

Have your say by 31 March 2018.
