This website is provided and maintained by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment. This privacy statement sets out the Department's practices relating to the privacy of your personal information. The Department's privacy practices are regulated by the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 (NSW) (PPIP ACT), the department's Privacy Management Plan (PMP), and the department’s data breach policy.
The department will only collect personal information for a lawful purpose which directly relates to our primary function as a NSW Government agency and for obtaining feedback about our services. The department will not collect any more information than is necessary for it to fulfil these functions.
The department will not disclose your personal information to anyone without your consent, unless legally required to do so.
Anyone engaged to collect, store or use personal information for the department will be required to comply with the PPIP Act and the department’s Privacy Management Plan.
Service NSW provides services to some customers of the department on our behalf including the National Parks and Wildlife Service and Crown land. This Privacy Statement along with the Privacy Management Plan applies whether services are provided directly by the department or by Service NSW.

Mandatory notification of data breach scheme – public notification register
The department complies with the mandatory notification of data breach scheme, which came into effect on 28 November 2023. Our procedures and practices for complying with our obligations under the scheme are set out in our data breach policy and privacy management plan.
Where a breach of privacy has occurred, and the matter has been assessed as likely to cause serious harm to any individual, the department must notify any affected individuals (an “eligible data breach”). Where notification is not possible or practical, a public notice must be published and publicised by the department. Any such public notices will also be listed on our website here.
There are currently no public notices of eligible data breaches by the department.

This information allows us to properly look into an issue you raise, or to respond to your feedback.
Clicking on the 'submit' button on the form acts as your consent for the Department to collect the information you have provided. Before you submit this information we will take reasonable steps to inform you of:
