Bega: what happens to a DA when the developer is Council

In response to concerns identified by the NSW Ombudsman in its report - An inherent conflict of interest: councils as a developer and regulator (December 2020) - changes to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2021 have been implemented. Council is now required to adopt a Conflict of Interest policy for Council-related development applications which identifies how any potential conflict of interest will be managed.
