6 Certain repealed SEPPs continue to apply to deemed EPIs
State Environmental Planning Policy No 1—Development Standards and State Environmental Planning Policy (Miscellaneous Consent Provisions) 2007, as in force immediately before the repeal of those policies, continue to apply to any of the following that are in force as if those policies had not been repealed—(a) Sydney Cove Redevelopment Authority Scheme,(b) Town and Country Planning (General Interim Development) Ordinance,(c) each Planning Scheme Ordinance,(d) each Interim Development Order.cll 6–8: Am 2019 (659), Sch 1.29.
7 Savings provision—SEPP 1 continues to apply to existing applications
State Environmental Planning Policy No 1—Development Standards, as in force immediately before its repeal, continues to apply to an application made under clause 6 of that Policy if the application was made, but not finally determined, before that repeal.Note—Section 30(2)(d) of the Interpretation Act 1987 provides that the repeal of a statutory rule does not affect the operation of any savings or transitional provision contained in the statutory rule. Section 5(6) of that Act provides that section 30 also applies to an environmental planning instrument. This means that the above provision continues to have effect despite the repeal of this Policy.cll 6–8: Am 2019 (659), Sch 1.29.
