LG Alert – Renewing renewable energy policy – what is proposed to change in the Planning and Design Code? (July 29th, 2019)

The State Planning Commission has recently released its Renewable Energy Discussion Paper, for informal public consultation. The feedback on the Discussion Paper is likely to heavily influence the way that the Commission drafts the Planning and Design Code policy (which will be publicly consulted around 1 October 2019).  We have prepared this LG Alert to assist councils to understand what the Discussion Paper means and how to make submissions to the Commission in order to drive Code policy.
