Environmental Planning and Assessment (COVID-19 Development-Vehicle Sanitisation Stations) Order 2020
On 12 August 2020, the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces made the Environmental Planning and Assessment (COVID-19 Development-Vehicle Sanitisation Stations) Order 2020, which allows development (including temporary building works) for the purpose of a vehicle sanitisation station to be carried out without further development consent as long as certain conditions are met.
Vehicle sanitisation stations provide for a professional sanitisation service to point to point vehicles such as taxis, hire vehicles, including rideshare, and community transport vehicles to protect the health of passengers and drivers during the COVID-19 pandemic. NSW Government vehicles including Ambulance, Police and HealthShare vehicles are also eligible for the sanitisation service.
This order will be in place until the COVID-19 pandemic is over, or another order is made amending these measures.
