Pricing Policy and Schedule of Fees and Charges 2019-20


Pricing policy – Summary of proposed changes

The Department of Planning and Environment released a Ministerial Direction under section 9.1 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 requiring councils to send particular planning proposals to Local Planning Panels from the 1st June 2018. Minor LEP amendments, such as corrections, transitional or machinery changes (i.e. housekeeping LEPs) are not required to be reported to the Waverley Local Planning Panel (WLPP).

We are now required to report all (non-minor) Planning Proposals (PP) lodged by applicants to the WLPP. For large and complex PPs these require a separate day for the WLPP and hence Council has to pay the Panel the daily fee of $10,250 (plus GST). Where PPs are relatively small-scale or simpler, they will be referred to the WLPP on the same day as Development Applications they will be required to pay a fee of $2,000 (plus GST) to cover the partial costs of the WLPP.

Where else can I see the changes?
