PLANning approval

RPA planning approval

The development of hospitals, medical centres and health research facilities with a capital investment value of more than $30 million, are deemed State Significant Development in accordance with the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.

As the redevelopment of Royal Prince Alfred (RPA) Hospital is $750 million, the project is declared a State Significant Development.

For the RPA Redevelopment, main works cannot commence until approval has been granted by the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment through the State Significant Development Application planning process. A State Significant Development Application will be prepared for the RPA Redevelopment and lodged with the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment as our next step. 

In accordance with the requirements of the EP&A Act 1979, State Significant Developments are required to carry out a comprehensive assessment process that involves community participation. The State Significant Development Application will be based on a detailed proposal for the redevelopment, developed in consultation with staff, clinicians, consumers, key stakeholders and the community.
