The new Act is easier to navigate and understand. It has 10 principal parts, with decimal numbering of all provisions. Some detailed provisions have also been moved to schedules and the regulations where appropriate. 

 

This table lists the existing section numbers of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 and the corresponding numbers of the new Act 2017 for the parts most frequently used by planning practitioners.

 

While stakeholders are encouraged to update their forms and templates by 1 March the regulations supporting the commencement of the changes to the Act will provide that a reference to an old section is a reference to a new section so that these forms and templates will continue to be able to be used post 1 March.
