Clause 101 of the State Environmental Planning Policy (Infrastructure) 2007 (Infrastructure SEPP) applies to development on land with a frontage to a classified road.
Building adjacent to a classified road requires the local council to seek the views of the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) and take any views provided into consideration.
The local council and RMS will consider issues such as vehicle access to the site and any impact on the performance of the classified road. The RMS will review the proposed development (plans and traffic impact report) and provide its comments to the council. You can find out further information at the RMS website.
Any works within the road and footpath (such as a driveway crossing or replacement kerb and gutter) will also require a concurrent approval by the council under the Roads Act 1993. Section 138 of the Roads Act 1993 requires RMS to give its written concurrence where the development is on a classified road.
