The new SEPP will provide greater certainty and flexibility for development to achieve good design outcomes. The SEPP aims to reduce prescriptive measures and encourage innovation by establishing central principles for design and place. Our overriding goal is to promote the sustainable growth and resilience of regions, cities, suburbs and towns across NSW. Key to their success are quality environments that support the health and well-being of people, our ecosystems and Country.
