The Draft Community Participation Plan details how and when the City of Newcastle will engage with the community across the planning functions it performs under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979. Planning functions may include plan making, preparation of a planning strategy or making decisions on a proposed development. The Plan is a required under the relevant NSW planning legislation and is due to be in place by 1 December 2019.
The overall aim is to enhance opportunities for the community to participate in planning decisions and guide planning outcomes. In doing so, the Plan intends to make it easier for everyone to get involved.
