Part 3A Division 1 Section 75B
75B   Projects to which Part applies
(1) General This Part applies to the carrying out of development that is declared under this section to be a project to which this Part applies:
(a)  by a State environmental planning policy, or
(b)  by order of the Minister published in the Gazette (including by an order that amends such a policy).
The carrying out of particular or a class of development, or development for a program or plan of works or activities, may be so declared.
(2) Kinds of projects The following kind of development may be declared to be a project to which this Part applies:
(a)  major infrastructure or other development that, in the opinion of the Minister, is of State or regional environmental planning significance,
(b)  major infrastructure or other development that is an activity for which the proponent is also the determining authority (within the meaning of Part 5) and that, in the opinion of the proponent, would (but for this Part) require an environmental impact statement to be obtained under that Part.
(3) Related development If only part of any development is a project to which this Part applies, the other parts of the development are (subject to subsection (4)) taken to be a project to which this Part applies. The development is to be dealt with under this Part as a single project.
(4) Limiting declared development The declaration of a project may be limited to an aspect of development (such as the construction of a project), to a particular period of carrying out development or otherwise.
(5) Amendment or revocation of declaration The declaration of a project may be amended or revoked at any time (including before or after an approval for the project is given under this Part).
