Update to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979
The Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 was significantly amended on 1 March 2018 involving complete restructuring and renumbering. References to Clauses within this Act have changed, including names of some certificates, applications and other services provided by Council. While every effort is being made to update the website and documentation, Council asks for your understanding as we work to implement these changes.
Development Services at Council looks after anything to do with your proposals to build in the Hawkesbury area as well as planning for new development areas in the future. For information on processes for putting in development applications and construction certificates, information on heritage grants available and the community consultation process for plans on exhibition look in this section.
