3.24 Publication, amendment and repeal of environmental planning instruments
(cf previous s 34)
(1)–(4) (Repealed)(5) An environmental planning instrument shall:(a) be published on the NSW legislation website, and(b) commence on and from the date of publication or a later date specified in the instrument.(5A) Subsection (5) does not prevent an environmental planning instrument from specifying different days for the commencement of different provisions of the instrument.(5B) Neither the whole nor any part of an environmental planning instrument is invalid merely because the instrument is published on the NSW legislation website after the day on which one or more of its provisions is expressed to commence. In that case, the provisions concerned commence on and from the day the instrument is published on the NSW legislation website, instead of on and from the earlier day.(6)–(8) (Repealed)(9) An environmental planning instrument shall be deemed to have been published on the NSW legislation website notwithstanding that any planning map or other instrument or material referred to, embodied or incorporated in the environmental planning instrument is not so published.(10) (Repealed)(11) An environmental planning instrument may be amended or repealed by a subsequent environmental planning instrument, whether of the same or a different type.Note.An environmental planning instrument is an instrument for the purposes of the Interpretation Act 1987, and accordingly standard provisions under that Act applying to statutory instruments apply to environmental planning instruments.
