31 January 2020
On 31 January 2020, the Department issued an Official Caution to Teys Australia Southern Property Pty Ltd for failing to disclose a reportable political donation of $3,000 on lodgement of a modification to DA220-07-2002 in 2018. The same donation was reported by Teys Australia Pty Ltd, the ultimate holding company of Teys Australia Southern Property Pty Ltd, on the NSW Electoral Commission website. Under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, applicants are required to disclose all reportable political donations to the Department when making development applications. Teys Australia has expressed remorse and has since banned all political donations in NSW to avoid a reoccurrence.
