Local Approvals Policy 2017

Our Local Approvals Policy 2017 (LAP) lists criteria for some approvals that are not regulated by State planning policies.

Part 1 of the LAP lists minor “exempt activities” (eg: install a caravan, stormwater drainage work, place waste on public land).

Part 2 of the LAP lists matters to consider for activities on public land (eg: protective hoardings on footpaths, installation of clothing recycling/charity bins).

Part 3 of the LAP describes the approval process for activities on public land.

The LAP became effective on 16 November 2017.
