Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 No 203
83B Staged development applications
(1) For the purposes of this Act, a staged development application is a development application that sets out concept proposals for the development of a site, and for which detailed proposals for separate parts of the site are to be the subject of subsequent development applications. The application may set out detailed proposals for the first stage of development.
(2) A development application is not to be treated as a staged development application unless the applicant requests it to be treated as a staged development application.
(3) If consent is granted on the determination of a staged development application, the consent does not authorise the carrying out of development on any part of the site concerned unless:
(a) consent is subsequently granted to carry out development on that part of the site following a further development application in respect of that part of the site, or
(b) the staged development application also provided the requisite details of the development on that part of the site and consent is granted for that first stage of development without the need for further consent.
(4) The terms of a consent granted on the determination of a staged development application are to reflect the operation of subsection (3).
