Parramatta. Council requests government

Parramatta City Council will request the NSW government that Joint Regional Planning Panels (JRPP) be abolished, along with the State Environmental Planning Policy (Affordable Rental Housing) 2009 (AHSEPP). The JRPPs, which were introduced to determine applications deemed to be of regional significance, removes the voice of councils in the assessment of development proposals and also limits the ability of residents to raise their concerns. The AHSEPP aims to help address affordable housing needs and provides a range of initiatives to encourage the development of new affordable rental housing. The application of this policy has allowed development to take place which is inconsistent with local planning standards and with the character of local areas.
