Council is the responsible planning authority for the Halloran Trust Lands PP. We are responsible for managing the planning proposal. Council also has a significant role in the decision making for the proposal subject to state government oversight.
Allen Price & Scarratts are a consulting company who represent the owner of the land. They are referred to as the "proponent".
The NSW Government has an oversight role in the planning proposal. The NSW Department of Planning and Environment has issued a Gateway Determination for the proposal. This document is available in the document library on this page. The determination establishes the requirements on Council for the proposal.
This proposal has a project control group (PCG) which is made up of the NSW Department of Planning and Environment, NSW Office of Environment and Heritage and Council. Other government agencies are able to participate on PCG on an as needs basis. The purpose of the PCG is to support the coordination of government stakeholders, provide strategic direction and leadership and to provide guidance on the planning proposal process.
The community has a role in the proposal. The proposal will be publically exhibited once the required studies, revised planning proposal document and masterplan have been prepared. Anyone will be able to make a submission. These submissions are an important component of the planning proposal process and are considered by Council and the NSW Department of Planning and Environment in any decision that is made.
