Amendments to written provisions:

  • Clause 4.1A Minimum subdivision requirements in certain residential and environment protection zones;
  • Clause 6.9 Limited development on foreshore area;
  • Clause 6.11 Development for dwelling houses in Zone E2 Environmental Conservation land fronting the Woronora River;
  • Clause 6.14 Landscaped areas in certain zones;
  • Schedule 1 - Additional Permitted Uses, Clause 2 Use of certain land;
  • Schedule 5 - Environmental Heritage.

Why is Council undertaking the amendment?

The third exhibition of draft SSLEP2013 (SSLEP2015) raised a number of planning issues that could not be addressed by amendments to the plan without necessitating a fourth exhibition of the draft plan. Council was of the view that to further delay the new LEP was not in the public interest. In addition, since the plan was made on 23 June 2015 several anomalies, errors or omissions have also been identified. These matters are addressed in the proposed amendment.

The Department of Planning and Environment has issued a Gateway Determination authorising council to place the draft amendment on public exhibition.  Council reports and the Gateway Determination can be viewed in the Document Library, above.

What do I need to consider when making a submission?

Anyone making a submission is required to disclose any reportable political donation, or any gift to any local Councillor or employee of Council. Please be advised that all submissions received in response to the exhibition will be available as a public record.

Who do I contact for further information?
