This Act applies to those parts of the State that are constituted as areas for the purposes of this Act, except as provided by or under this Act.
Note : This Act does not apply to the whole of New South Wales. Some parts of the State do not come within a local government area. For example, parts of the Western Division of the State (to which the Crown Land Management Act 2016 applies) and Lord Howe Island (to which the Lord Howe Island Act 1953 applies) are not subject to this Act.
Some local government areas or parts may not be subject to this Act (or to all of its provisions) because of special statutory exceptions. Other exceptions may be provided by regulations made under this Act.
