Referral agency’s assessment
55 Referral agency’s assessment
(1) A referral agency decided by the Minister under section 48(6) must assess
a development application as required under section 45, as if the agency were
the assessment manager.
(2) For any other referral agency, a regulation may
prescribe the matters the referral agency—
(a) may, must, or must only
assess a development application against; and
(b) may, must, or must only
have regard to for the assessment.
See section 276A for the matters
the chief executive, acting as a referral agency, must have regard to in
relation to a State heritage place.
(3) If the regulation refers to a
statutory instrument or another document applied, adopted or incorporated
(with or without changes), the reference is a reference to the instrument or
other document as in effect when the application was properly made.
However, the referral agency may give the weight that the referral agency
considers is appropriate, in the circumstances, to any amendment or
replacement of the instrument or other document that came into effect after
the application was properly made.
