The department is inviting stakeholders from 31 May 2022 until 12 July 2022 to have their say on the proposed amendments to individual local environmental plans (LEPs) across NSW.
To have your say, you can:
To support community and stakeholders during this exhibition, we have built a web tool so that you can readily identify local changes and make specific submissions on the proposed translation and associated detail relevant to their local areas.
The web tool displays the proposed land use table for each council’s employment zone(s) alongside the land use table of Business and Industrial zones being replaced. This enables comparison and clarity around the extent of change. Feedback should be provided within this tool so that it is focused on the proposed changes.
3. View the new zones via the ePlanning spatial viewer
If you do not have a particular location, the zone translations can be viewed on the spatial viewer and searched by local government area or by free scrolling. This will enable you to toggle between the current and the proposed zone. If you would like to see the proposed land use tables for a local government area these can be found under the search by LGA tool.
Stakeholders are invited to make a submission on the extent of the zone translation, whether they believe it is suitable, and associated detail relevant to particular sites or localities. Comments on the new employment zones are not subject to this exhibition, as the employment zones were finalised and made in December 2021 following the May 2021 exhibition.
Please note all submissions will be taken into consideration.
