Following the release of the Retail Expert Advisory Committee’s Independent Recommendations Report, the Department is proposing an amendment to the definition of ‘bulky goods premises’ in the Standard Instrument Local Environmental Plan.
Currently, bulky goods premises must meet two requirements:
The proposed amendment will remove the requirement to provide both a large floor area and direct vehicular access, by replacing ‘and’ with ‘or’. This means that bulky goods retailers will only need to meet one of the requirements to satisfy the definition.
To find out more about the proposed amendment, please view the explanation of proposed amendment. The proposed amendment was on public exhibition until 5pm Wednesday, 13 December 2017.
Engagement is now closed and feedback is being considered.
