EFFORTS are finally being made to resolve decades of planning headaches caused by paper estates that exist in the Shoalhaven, and elsewhere in the state.

Paper estates are subdivisions drawn up on paper, but which usually are not zoned to allow housing or other forms of development.

In the Shoalhaven people have been living illegally on paper estates for many years, while other estates date back more than 100 years.

In a complicated and emotive issue, the NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure is seeking feedback on proposals to change legislation allowing paper estates to be developed.

The department is seeking feedback until March 9 on draft regulations and guidelines setting up processes to overcome the difficulties associated with the highly fragmented land ownership in many of these subdivisions.

The proposed mechanisms would be available if:

* The existing subdivision pattern is not viable (such as when the lots are too small)

* The zoning and environmental issues have been resolved; and

* The development proposal is supported by a significant majority of owners (i.e. at least 60 per cent of the owners and owners of at least 60 per cent of the land area).

Further details are provided on the department’s website at:
