Community Participation in planning & development

Waverley Council is guided by the Community Participation Plan (CPP), which seeks to make community participation in local planning matters clearer for the Waverley community. It does this by outlining in one place how and when Council will involve the community and receive input across various planning processes and decisions.

The CPP was introduced following amendments to the EP&A Act in March 2018, which seek to ‘provide increased opportunity for community participation in environmental planning and assessment’. The Waverley CPP has been prepared to meet Council’s legislative requirements under Division 2.6 and Schedule 1 of the EP&A Act. It applies to the exercise of planning processes and decisions by Council, Council Officers and the Waverley Local Planning Panel (WLPP) only.
