State Environmental Planning Policy (Transport and Infrastructure) 2021 (Transport and Infrastructure SEPP) benefits communities by providing a more efficient planning framework for infrastructure in NSW.
The Transport and Infrastructure SEPP was introduced in 2021 as part of the department’s consolidation of state environmental planning policies. The Transport and Infrastructure SEPP consolidates and repeals:
- SEPP (Infrastructure) 2007 (Infrastructure SEPP)
- SEPP (Educational Establishments and Childcare Facilities) 2017 (Education and Childcare SEPP)
- SEPP (Major Infrastructure Corridors) 2020 (Corridor SEPP)
- SEPP (Three Ports) 2013 (Three Ports SEPP).
The Transport and Infrastructure SEPP sets out the planning rules and controls for infrastructure, including:
- Chapter 2 Infrastructure (essential services such as hospitals, roads, water supply, telecommunications and electricity networks)
- Chapter 3 Educational establishments and child care facilities (schools, child care centres, and TAFEs)
- Chapter 4 Major infrastructure corridors
- Chapter 5 Three ports—Port Botany, Port Kembla and Port of Newcastle
- Chapter 6 Moorebank Freight Intermodal Precinct.
