Policies and guidelines

The Independent Planning Commission has in place several policies which provide guidance, consistency, accountability, efficiency, and clarity on how we operate -- particularly around our decision-making process for state significant development applications.

These policies and guidelines also address other matters concerning the Commission, our people and our work -- such as conduct, managing conflict of interest or encouraging and promoting community input into our decisions. 

In line with our Transparency Policy, all these documents are made publicly available to help foster a better understanding of how we carry out our important role in the NSW planning system.
