Waverley Community Participation Plan

Consultation has concluded

In March 2018, amendments to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (EP&A Act) introduced new requirements to increase the opportunity for community participation in environmental planning processes and decisions. As part of these requirements, Council must prepare and adopt a Community Participation Plan (CPP) by 1 December 2019.

The draft Waverley CPP seeks to make community participation in local planning matters clearer for the Waverley community. It does this by outlining in one place how and when the community can participate in various statutory planning processes and decisions. This includes planning related strategy or policy development, plan making and development assessment. It also establishes Council’s community participation principles which we use to guide our approach to community engagement. The draft Waverley CPP will form part of Council’s suit of Community Engagement documents.

The draft Waverley CPP meets Council’s legislative requirements under the EP&A Act.
