This page provides the application forms needed to get approval for Part 4 development proposals, where the Minister for Planning is the consent authority.

Part 4 developments

The Department assesses development proposals where the Minister for Planning is the consent authority under Part 4 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.

 

Most development proposals that need approval under Part 4 of the Environmental Planning Assessment Act 1979 are assessed and determined by local councils. The Minister for Planning is however the consent authority for a limited number of development proposals including:

  • those in the Kosciuszko alpine resort area
  • major advertising signs in transport corridors
  • development in the Gosford City Centre with a value greater than $10m
  • State significant development.
