Discuss about the Development in Planning and Environment in NSW.



There are some purposes of the Development Planning and Environment Services in NSW.  The main aim of this organization is to create good places for housing and business process. It also focuses to safeguard the green spaces of the community and the natural resources.  There are establishment of some policies, which helps to sustain the environmental health of the   community for example, Alpine Resorts, building Subdivisions and Safety Campaigns, bushfires, coastal policy, Government agreements and Forums, State Significant Sites, Development Assessments and Operations, Environment and Heritage, Industrial Hazards, Housing, Mining and Resources, Planning System Circulars and finally the Building Systems Circulars. These policies are tough to implement and it needs a serious team of employees who takes the responsibility of executing these policies. In that case, if all the operations have to be done manually then lots of time are consumed. Therefore, the decision to introduce the e-Planning service is very much wise and appropriate ( Deng et al. 2017).

This research paper includes the different software tools of the ePlanning services. The detail functions and utilities of these ePlanning tools are given vividly in this research paper (Piracha 2015). There are also some instructions and short critical analysis for the betterment of the ePlanning services. The goals of the ePlanning program accelerate the quality, durability, and consistency of planning data across NSW. Moreover, it also helped to improve transparency, greater confidence in the planning system and time and cost savings. More than 85,000 users have used the ePlanning tools in the first five months after the

launch on 28 July 2014.  It can be said  that there exists approximately 66 State policies and that outline the NSW Government’s approach  which interacts with  planning matters and very particular  to the State and people of NSW. State policies are mainly legislated by the Governor only if the Minister for Planning suggests the governor.

Description of ePlanning

The ePlanning programme in the North South Wales of Australia Planning and Environment system helps to complete the work in this department in a more easy way.  The Department of Planning and Environment formulates different plans and strategies for maintain the balance in planning of different houses and buildings for various purposes as well looking that the natural resources that is the environment does not get affected by the planning system.  The ePlanning is the application of technology in this department for online lodging and tracking applications.  It helps the council and departments to keep in mind and observe the planning information on an interactive map, which is totally controlled by website. This ePlanning system is primarily the revolutionized system of conventional paper based work where every person has to come to the department to fulfill his or her work.  It also enables the new stakeholders to be in touch with the planning information (Franco-Trigo et al.2017)  .  Before the existence of the ePlanning, the interactions between the departments, council and communities could not be done in the business hour.Thus, the work is delayed for this and it took a long time to finish the work.


Some examples of the use of ePlanning in NSW

It can be said that NSW used computers long before the application of eplanning. The characteristic, type, aim and the prevalence f the computers of the application has been transformed from a very long period. Thus, in this planning system the application of the technology has been modified along with the evolution of the computer software. .In modern day different computer software and applications are utilized for planning specific and generic purpose.  More or less all planning authorities in the world regularly use these upgraded software. It can be said that planning methods and connected computer software applications are specifically divided into two divisions. The first is ‘generic’ and ‘strategic planning specific’. The examples of generic tools are mapping, databases, spreadsheets, scheduling software and internet-based data collection or delivery of services. The generic tools are hugely utilized for daily planning integrating the assessment of development and growth. The planning specific implements are mainly related with the strategic planning.

In ePlanning system of NSW there is use of software application for example, electronic lodgment and tracking. Now, there is an explanation of these software equipments. Application Tracking is the online program that helps the planning developers to supervise the improvement in the work.  The main goal of this software is to easily track, simplify and help in development methods.  This system is presently used in some of the local councils of NSW. NSW also supports the local councils to use this computer application. The second software is the Electronic Housing Code ( EHC) is the online programe that permits the creators to assess that whether they can develop any planning approvals by using a fast tracked approval process.  The

creators can accommodate or lodge and track yielding development applications online. Hence, for this the creators of this planning can access the information at anywhere. The third one is the interactive building, which is free online software that helps the planning developers to understand the development criteria for general building works, which needed no permissions for any approvals (Sheng et al. 2014).  These tools support the developers to advice and suggest on simple language in context to residential, commercial and the industrial buildings. The fourth software tool is the planning viewer that indicates that what type of planning rules can be applied to characteristics in NSW. This software enables handling google-maps technology and indirectly allows them to perception that what kind of rules may be applicable to individual land parcels. It can be said that this type of software enables the planning developers to quickly observe that whether the multistory buildings can be permitted. Inspite of the ePlanning used in the planning and environment development in NSW, the ability for online planning services in Australia has not been utilized for public participatory planning. It can be also said that online participatory planning mechanisms are not consistent with the centralizing of planning.

There are some examples, which signify the consequences of the ePlanning system in North South Wales. For example, numerical statistics shown by this indicates that more than 20,000 visitors have opened the new portal of ePlanning tools in the first 30 days of them becoming available.  Another  example of this is one of the visitor of this website was Philip Graus from Cox Richardson Architects and Planners in Sydney who  expressed his satisfaction regarding the ePlanning tools in the news channel. Philip Graus from Cox Richardson Architects and Planners in Sydney also opined positive views in the Government news. Mr Graus said that the planning system in one-way or other is very complicated and everybody becomes very

confused due to this (Martin and Rice 2015).   This system is very up to date and applicable in present day life.  As he belongs to this profession he can understand that the importance of this ePlanning.  He also denotes the fact that any person can observe the rules and the mode of development according to his or her choice. He also said that the ePlanning tools could be upgraded by sorting out a checklist before submitting a DA, so that people could not progress until the application was complete, and by giving people, an overview of what was going to happen in their area. He said that there must be a strategic plan, which can access things for the future. Another ePlanning feature is Interactive Buildings.  The explanation of this tool is given before. This helps a company or the individual who click on a 3-D image of a residential, commercial and industrial building and helps to rectify and check the development quality for common minor building work. Interactive Buildings help to indent up 150 visits per day, mostly from people enquiring about fences, carports and balconies, air condition units, aerials, swimming pool, solar energy system, garden sheds and green houses (Potschin 2016). The Interactive Buildings tool provides  the opportunity to watch the  interactive models of commercial and industrial change of use. It can be said that the tool enabled a simple visual breakdown of low impact developments exempt from planning and building approvals


Benefits and Pitfalls of ePlanning

It can be said that the $ million project is useful in modernization the planning and environmental system by the utilization of technology and digitization of this planning assistance. The Department has launched the ePlanning tools systematically. The first part was released in July 2014. The second phase was rescheduled in 2015.  These two parts were

integrated were integrated and the tools were implemented into the NSW planning portal. The ePlanning portal was further upgraded in 2016. There are certain expectations and utility of this ePlanning system.   The community or the people in Sydney and other areas of North South Wales expect that there must be deliverance of reliable planning information.  The stakeholders demand that there must be a routine upgradation of the tools, which will provide minute details of the planning services (Leung 2015). The prime demand of the community is the availability of the government data in the ePlanning system.  Then the facts of the ePlanning must be specifically based on evidence. It can be said that the successful application of the ePlanning program can only be gained through the alliance between NSW Government agencies and local governments.  Another significant thing, which must be kept in mind that in order to obtain specific information it is not compulsory that not everybody must know English so the planning information and the instructions of the tools, must be given in other vernacular and local languages (Williamson and Parolin 2013) . There are also some specific objects and importance of this ePanning service.  The first positive aspect of the ePlanning is betterment in providing proper customer eservices to access their relevant information. This service gives assistance to the customers by helping them to quickly filling and processing the applications. The second thing is that the ePlanning service must be very crucial in assessing the development of building according to the choice of location and the environmental factors related to it.  The ePlanning service must furnish purposeful information on development activity and it must help the customers in taking proper decisions (Isobel, Foster and Edwards 2015).  It also helps the businessperson to sort out the investment areas and create jobs accordingly.


The main criteria of the Planning and Environment process are to look after the fact that the infrastructure of building companies or organization and the house complex does not deteriorate the environmental condition of the area (Galliers and Leidner 2014).  There are policies and guidelines fall into five key topics in context to the proper environment regulation of a particular area.  In relation to human being only, there are some things, which are to be considering such as the health and safety, heritage, social and economic matters (Gifford 2016).  Then, in context to building infrastructures, there are industrial, commercial and residential structures, which are analyzed minutely so that it does not harm the surrounding in any ways or other (Guy, McIlgorm and Waterman 2014).  When it comes to the land for the sustenance of the natural resources certain matters must be in consideration such as the flora, fauna, landforms and the terrestrial environmental quality (Harris-Roxas et al. 2014).  Air and water are the main sources of the pollution, hence in that context the hydrological processes and the quality of the water must be checked and kept in consideration and the quality of the air and the atmospheric odour (Ansell, Gibson and Salt 2016). Thus, these factors must be kept in mind regarding these factors while developing   of the ePlanning tools (Marques, Da Cruz and Pires 2015) .  The ePlanning tools must be developed in such a way that it can detect and critically analyze the environmental factors (Fallon and Sullivan 2014).  

There are certain recommendations for the improvement of the ePlanning service is that the SIX Viewer must be applicable as the plat-form for e-planning to collate, integrate, manage and display planning information from councils and relevant NSW Government agencies to facilitate and increase the appropriation of the ePlanning initiatives (Setegn and Donoso ed, 2015).  There must be development of protocols in such a way that it must have a quality approach and attitude for the exchange and management of the planning information. The effectual conveyance of the planning service must be traverse in certain things such as the electronic Development Assessments.  There must be an attitude of sparing and following certain codes to make this ePlanning service more effective.  Finally, the tool must be able to apply the 149-Planning certificate. The Section 149 Planning certificate is a legal document that confirms the zoning and applicable rules for development of one’s property.  


Critical analysis of the E-Planning service

Hence, it can be said that there are various benefits of the new ePlanning services.   However, there are still options to upgrade and develop more e-tools so that it can help the people to deal easily with the planning services. Hence, the introduction of the development of the e-Planning system is very much beneficial for the the people who works in the Planning and Environment Development (Giles-Corti et al. 2014) . It is known that the aboriginal and the native people has much affinity to their mother tongue, so in that context the linguistic applications of the ePlanning must be based on local languages so that there is no disparity or conflict due to this reason (Bunkerand Troy 2015).


In conclusion, it can be inferred that the modern world is nothing without internet and websites. If one observe everywhere like in any office, departmental stores, schools and colleges there is utilization of computers and internets.  Rather computer has been shifted to iPads and tabs which is very comfortable to carry in every place. The using of computers and laptops has become an inevitable part in studying and learning things.  The internet sources are also very helpful in research works and other purposes. In banking sector, the savings and security of all the people are kept secured with the help of e-resources. Hence, with   the help of the e banking can also do the transaction and withdrawal of money.  One can buy things such as clothes; other amenities of home can be brought by online purchasing. Hence, in this situation the ePlanning service is the necessary thing in the Planning and Environment Services.  The foremost thing for which there is necessary of the ePlanning is that it helps to complete the work very fast.  It saves time of the people.  Then by applying different software tools such as interactive building and other software tools helps to select the  types of building, its colour and other  things which is associated with the commercial building and house complex. There is software, which helps in tackling the google-maps technology and permits them to perception that rules, which may be applicable to individual land, parcels. Nevertheless, there should be continuous up gradation of this ePlanning otherwise, the department will unable to be in track with the whole process. Finally, it can be concluded that ePlanning service is very much fruitful for the Planning and Environment services.
