The Planning, Development and Infrastructure (Transitional Provisions) Regulations 2017 set out requirements to implement the various stages of the new planning system.
About this document
These Regulations were made to support the transfer of processes and rights granted under the former system, as each stage of the new system went live under the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 (the Act).
It also provided for the staged introduction of new planning tools and governance frameworks in a way that maximised the benefits of the reform program, while minimising disruption for the people using the system.
A number of transitional provisions in Schedule 8 of the Act will not be commenced as they have been superseded by the transitional regulations. This is because the staged implementation of the Act was not contemplated when Schedule 8 was drafted.
