Community Participation Plan

A Community Participation Plan (CPP) is intended to make it easier for the community to understand how to participate in planning matters in NSW. The requirement to prepare a CPP applies to all relevant planning authorities under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (EP&A Act).

A CPP sets out how and when planning authorities will engage with its community on the planning functions it performs. The CPP must also set out the minimum public exhibition timeframes relevant to the planning authority that are provided in Schedule 1 to the EP&A Act.
