Online planning tools

NSW Government has a suite of new online planning tools which should make the planning system faster and simpler to use for families, businesses and local councils.

See:
planning.nsw.gov.au/LatestNews/../Smarter-Planning-for-the-21st-Century

    The new ePlanning tools include:
  • Planning Viewer – to show the planning rules that apply to properties in NSW where a standard Local Environmental Plan has been adopted;
  • Interactive buildings – users can click on an interactive 3D image model of a standard home, commercial or industrial property and understand in plain English what development standards apply and what work can be undertaken as exempt development; and
  • Local Insights – to see a range of useful planning related statistics and projections at a council level and the location of current development applications where available, from mobile devices, tablets or computers.
