Codes SEPP – Housing Code Changes

On 22 September 2017, amendments were made to the NSW Government’s new simplified Housing Code to clarify the provisions for gross floor area and landscaped area – reverting these provisions to those that applied under the previous General Housing Code. A two-year transitional period for the previous General Housing Code has also been introduced.

The Housing Code is a component of State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008. The Code continues to apply only to certain land in Mosman.
