The Martin Place Station Precinct proposal is identified as State Significant Development (SSD). 


The Stage 1 Amending DA has gone through the State Significant Development assessment process.


Macquarie Group’s separate ‘Stage 2’ State Significant Development applications have been exhibited and will be assessed by the Department.


State Significant Development assessment process:

  • The applicant, Macquarie Group, lodges an application and supporting documentation to the Department of Planning and Environment.
  • The Department prepares the Secretary’s Environmental Assessment Requirements (SEARs), which outlines issues the applicant needs to address.
  • The applicant prepares and lodges an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to address the SEARs.
  • The Department publicly exhibits the EIS and consults with the community, local councils, government agencies and other key stakeholders.
  • The Department publishes submissions and asks the applicant to address any concerns or issues raised by the community, council and government agencies.
  • The applicant prepares a formal Response to Submissions (RtS) report, which the Department makes publicly available.
  • The Department assesses the merits of the proposal, including consideration of the EIS, all submissions and community feedback, and the RtS, and makes a recommendation to the Minister for Planning for determination.
  • The Department then notifies the applicant, relevant government agencies and councils on the outcome.
