Local Approvals Policy

A Local Approvals Policy controls activities under Section 68 of the Local Government Act. Section 68 identifies works that are exempt, specifies which works require approval through an activity application and outlines criteria for consideration in the approval of activity applications.

Due to extenuating circumstances, current recipients of Recovery Pods from the 2019 bushfires have had delays to their rebuilds. However, the current two year leases on these Pods in the Snowy Monaro Local Government Area (LGA) began expiring 2022. Council adopted this Local Approvals Policy allowing these Pods to remain on private properties for a period of four years to support the transition of recipients into permanent accommodation.
