CHANGES IN LEP


Changes Below ... Good News

All NSW LEP
should now have the same wording making it easy to understand LEP from different councils.
The first of these new LEPs is expected to be made early in 2008
and by 2011 all 152 councils will have made their standard instrument LEPs.

MAJOR DIFF ___

The standard LEP introduces standard terms and definitions  to all councils within the State.
The number of definitions will be reduced from 1,700 to 250
Common planning terms and number of zones reduced from  3,100 categories to about 40

as well as standard zones
 Timing:
coastal councils to prepare by 2009
other councils by 2011.

Now go check out your local LEP and see if it has some changes,
which you may be able to take advantage of, by zone changes or Development potential.
Maybe a commercial or industrial area is now zone residential ????hmmmm
