Planning System Acceleration Program

The NSW Government has recently announced plans to fast-track the assessment of Development Applications and Rezonings to keep the economy moving during this time, through the Planning System Acceleration Program. This program aims to accelerate the approval process for projects that meet the below three essential criteria:

  • Jobs – does the project create jobs during construction and ongoing?
  • Timing
    • can a decision on the project be made quickly?
    • for DAs, can the project commence within six months?
    • for planning proposals, can the project proceed to DA within six months and enable unlocking of significant construction investment?
  • Public benefit – can the project deliver or support public benefits (e.g. affordable housing, infrastructure or significant public space)?

Whilst the first 24 projects have now been announced, further tranches will follow which will enable more projects to be considered for the fast-track process. If you believe your project may fit the criteria, please contact Mecone on 02 8667 8668 to discuss how we can assist with your application.
