Council is seeking public comment on the draft Ku-ring-gai Community Participation Plan placed on public exhibition between Monday 28 October and Monday 25 November 2019.
The NSW Government requires Council to prepare a Community Participation Plan (CPP), to set out how and when we will engage with our community on the planning functions Council performs under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.
Council’s CPP is required to set out mandatory requirements for community participation by Council for the exercise of its planning functions.
The mandatory community participation requirements include minimum public exhibition timeframes relating to planning functions where Council is the consent authority.
The draft CPP has incorporated Council’s existing community engagement practices and statutory consultation requirements associated with Council’s planning functions.
At this stage no new engagement practices are being proposed. Council will be undertaking a review of its community consultation policy and supporting procedures in 2020.
The outcome of this process may necessitate a further review of the CPP.
The draft CPP is required to be exhibited for 28 days, with the final CPPs published on the NSW Planning Portal.
