Request to Modify a Major Project or Concept Project

Introduction & Notes

Please Note: You will be assigned one Job Number per application for a modification to a major project. If you have multiple approvals that you wish to modify you must lodge a separate modification application for each major project approval.

Schedule 6A of the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979, provides that section 75W continues to apply for the purpose of the modification of a project applications and concept plan approved before or after the repeal of Part 3A of the Act.

A Part 4 consent which was subject to clause 8J(8) of the Environmental Planning & Assessment Regulation 2000 prior to the repeal of Part 3A, can also be modified under section 75W.

This form should be used to request the Minister to modify a Project Approval or Concept Plan Approval under section 75W of the Act.

Before lodging this form you should contact the Department of Planning and Environment to confirm the supporting documentation required to assess the modification. The Secretary may issue environmental assessment requirements that must be complied with before your request will be considered by the Minister.

Supporting documents can be attached in Step 6 of this form. N.B. the file(s) comprising your supporting documents must be in "pdf" format, non-secured and no more than 10Mb.

Persons lodging applications are required to declare reportable political donations (including donations of $1,000 or more) made in the previous two years. For more details, go to www.planning.nsw.gov.au/Assess-and-Regulate/Development-Assessment/Systems/Donations-and-Gift-Disclosure.
