Community Participation Plan

The Plan makes participation in planning and development decisions clearer for our community. The Plan details how and when the community can participate in planning decisions including information about notification and advertising requirements.

The Port Macquarie-Hastings Council Community Participation Plan has been prepared in accordance with the provisions of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, to provide a single document that the community can access that outlines:

  • The different types of planning functions Council performs;

  • How and when community members can participate in planning decisions; and

  • Council’s community participation requirements under planning legislation, including all minimum mandatory exhibition timeframes.
