74D Development control plans required or authorised by environmental planning instruments
(1) An environmental planning instrument may require or permit a development control plan to be prepared before any particular development or kind of development may be carried out (and make provision with respect to the preparation and content of any such plan).(2) Any such development control plan may outline the development of all the land to which it applies.(3) Any such development control plan may be prepared (and submitted to the relevant planning authority) by the owners of the land to which it applies or by such percentage of those owners as the environmental planning instrument concerned allows. A person authorised by those owners may act on their behalf for the purposes of this subsection.(4) The relevant planning authority may make a development control plan submitted to it under this section, including with such changes as it thinks fit.(5) If the relevant planning authority refuses to make a development control plan submitted to it under this section (or delays by more than 60 days to make a decision on whether to make the plan):(a) the owners may make a development application despite the requirement of the environmental planning instrument concerned for the preparation of a development control plan, or(b) the Minister may act in the place of the relevant planning authority to make the plan (with or without modification), but only if the environmental planning instrument concerned authorises the Minister to do so.(6) The regulations may extend the period of 60 days referred to in subsection (5) in connection with any failure by the owners to provide further information required by the relevant planning authority for the purposes of making the plan.Note.Section 75M provides that a concept plan may be submitted for a project to which Part 3A applies as an alternative to a development control plan required by an environmental planning instrument. Section 83C provides that a staged development application may be made for development requiring consent under Part 4 as an alternative to a development control plan required by an environmental planning instrument.
