LEP Assessment tool for Water Related Clauses

The LEP Assessment Tool is a Microsoft® Excel® (for Office 365) spreadsheet that contains all water related clauses for 65 LEPs that were in force across coastal NSW, prior to provisions for LSPSs under the EP&A Act 1979.

This tool provides you with immediate access to water-related clauses in LEPs, and functions primary as a search tool of what LEPs cover. The tool was designed as a resource to facilitate effective and consistent reviews of the content of water related clauses in LEPs.

It helps you assess if your stated zone objectives are appropriate and comprehensive given the water-related requirements in the clauses themselves, and whether they are responsive to the priorities and issues of your community.
