Concept Plan

The Minto Renewal Project has been determined by the Minister for Planning to be a Major Project under the State Environmental Planning Policy (Major Projects) 2005.

This means that the Minister for Planning is the approval authority for the project under Part 3A of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979. The environmental assessment of the project has been delegated to Campbelltown City Council. 

To ensure the proper implementation of the objectives of the project, a suite of planning documents has been developed including:

  • A Concept Plan, which will guide further planning approvals for infrastructure and subdivision
  • A Development Control Plan, to provide building guidelines for Minto in line with the Concept Plan
  • A Local Environmental Plan, to rezone land in Minto in line with the Concept Plan
  • A Planning Agreement, to ensure that public areas such as parks and roads are in line with the Concept Plan
