1.1.8 Activity Status Defaults

​​​​​​1.1.8.1 Process to Determine Activity Status

The following flowchart is used to work out the Activity Status of a proposal (i.e. Permitted, Controlled, Restricted Discretionary, Discretionary or Non-Complying, see 1.1.7). While this flowchart will be relevant for most proposals there will be some specific situations where other legislation or National Environmental Standards will overrule the result.

Furthermore, the Activity Status may be dependent on the proposal complying with standards (rules) in the Plan. If the proposal fails to comply with these standards then this may alter the Activity Status (see 1.1.8.2).

It is also important to note that a proposal may come under more than one definition (e.g. an Industrial activity may also be a Hazardous Facility).

1.1.8.2 Infringement of Standards

 Unless specifically stated otherwise in the relevant Activity Status Table:
 
​a) Permitted activities that infringe any standards will be assessed as a restricted discretionary activity in respect of: ​
i.​ The effects of non-compliance with those standards.​
ii.​ Any criteria identified for those specific standards.​
b)​ Controlled activities will be granted subject to conditions. Assessment in respect of the conditions will be restricted to the criteria identified in the rule for that specific controlled activity. ​
c)​ Restricted discretionary activities that infringe any standards will be assessed as a Restricted discretionary activity in respect of: ​
i.​ The effects of non-compliance with those standards.​
ii.​ Any criteria identified for those specific standards​
iii.​ Any criteria identified for that specific restricted discretionary activity. ​
d)​ If the activity is subject to a site, feature or overlay which has a different activity status than in the zone Activity Status Table, the more restrictive activity status will apply.​
