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