Plans Key Initiatives Update

As mentioned last month we've commenced a few Key Initiatives in the Plans processing space, to improve turnaround times and reduce multiple handling of plans. 

Plan Requisitions Project

As part of this initiative we have:

On the 17th May we sent out a survey to get your feedback and opinions on what you think would help reduce plan requisitions. The survey will remain open until 5pm 28th May, and if you haven't already completed the survey, we encourage you to provide your feedback.   

And, if you believe you have received a frivolous requisition from NSW LRS we'd like to hear from you. Please send the details to
