To change the scope of a project after it’s received planning approval, a modification request must be lodged with the Department.


The process involves:

  1. Transport for NSW lodging a request with the Secretary of the Department to modify the Minister’s approval for State Significant infrastructure
  2. TfNSW considering the relevant impacts of the modification against those for the approved project
  3. The Department independently assessing the modification request
  4. The Minister modifying the approval (with our without conditions) or not approving the modification.
