Part 3 Division 1 Section 33B
33B   Staged repeal and review of environmental planning instruments
(1)  In order to facilitate the staged implementation of standard instruments and the periodic review of existing instruments, the Minister may, by order published on the NSW legislation website, establish a staged repeal program for existing environmental planning instruments.
(2)  The staged repeal program may include provision for or with respect to the following:
(a)  the repeal of designated environmental planning instruments at specified times during the period of the program,
(b)  requirements for the preparation and making of replacement instruments (including the times by which proposals for replacement instruments are to be submitted to the Secretary or the Minister),
(c)  the postponement of the repeal of particular instruments when the making of a replacement instrument is delayed,
(d)  the periodic review by a council of environmental planning instruments (other than State environmental planning policies) applying in its area and the submission of reports of each review to the Secretary.
(3)  At the time specified by the staged repeal program for the repeal of a designated environmental planning instrument, the instrument is repealed by the operation of this section.
(4)  The Minister may, under Division 4, make a local environmental plan to take effect on the repeal of an instrument under this section pending the making of a replacement instrument in accordance with this Act. Any such plan made by the Minister is to adopt the mandatory provisions of a standard instrument (with the prescriptions the Minister considers necessary in the particular circumstances).
(5)  For the purposes of subsection (4):
(a)  a local environmental plan made pursuant to that subsection is not required to comply with the conditions precedent in Division 4 for the making of an environmental planning instrument, and
(b)    (Repealed)
(c)  the council is to provide the Minister, when requested, with copies of any maps or other relevant documents prepared or held by the council.
The Minister may direct the council to pay to the Secretary such amount as the Secretary determines will meet the reasonable costs incurred on behalf of the Minister by the Department for the purposes of making the plan under subsection (4).
 See section 118 (1A) in relation to the power to appoint an administrator to exercise plan-making functions when a council fails to comply with the requirements of the staged repeal program for the preparation or making of a replacement instrument.
