Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 No 203
115ZD Staged infrastructure applications
(1) For the purposes of this Part, a staged infrastructure application is an application for approval of State significant infrastructure under this Part that sets out concept proposals for the proposed infrastructure, and for which detailed proposals for separate parts of the infrastructure are to be the subject of subsequent applications for approval. The application may set out detailed proposals for the first stage.
(2) If approval is granted under this Part on the determination of a staged infrastructure application, the approval does not authorise the carrying out of any part of the State significant infrastructure unless:
(a) approval is subsequently granted to carry out that part of the infrastructure following a further application for approval in respect of that part of the infrastructure, or
(b) the staged infrastructure application also provided the requisite details of that part of the infrastructure and approval is granted for that first stage without the need for further approval.
(3) The terms of an approval granted on the determination of a staged infrastructure application are to reflect the operation of subsection (2).
