regional boundaries for NSW

 

A coordination team is responsible for supporting the regional teams. The regions across NSW are Northern, Western, Southern, Hunter and Central Coast, Sydney East and Sydney West.

 

The regional teams implement high quality land use planning outcomes through the assessment of planning proposals, rezoning reviews and preparation of Regional Plans for regional NSW which guide and manage land use change and growth in local communities.

 

The regional teams are the main interface between the department and local government, and work closely with stakeholders and the community to ensure balanced and sustainable outcomes.

 

The regional teams are responsible for:

  • the preparation of regional plans
  • assisting with the delivery of local council initiated strategies, 
  • planning proposals, rezoning reviews and the making of Local Environmental Plans,
  • council, community and stakeholder engagement,
  • contributing to the review of planning policy and procedures, and
  • statutory functions including concurrences and site compatibility certifications.

In the Metropolitan area the teams assist the Greater Sydney Commission in the implementation of the District Plans through the review of Planning Proposals, Rezoning Reviews and the making of Local Environmental Plans.
