Proposed changes by the NSW government to extend the number of days (past 30) for filming as an exempt development has caused alarm for many local residents who have been affected by filming activity in recent months.
The NSW government changes are part of wider reforms aimed at ‘Bringing fun back to NSW’.
Other changes include ‘a complying development pathway to allow a change of use of retail premises to small live music or arts venues, including developments standards, and amendments to the Building Code of Australia’.
