Planning Proposals

A Planning Proposal is the first step in preparing a Local Environmental Plan (LEP).  A Planning Proposal is a document that explains a request or intended effect of a proposed LEP and sets out the justification for making that plan.  Generally the proposed LEP is intended to amend Council’s principal LEP such as the Shoalhaven Local Environmental Plan 2014. 

Further information on planning proposals and making LEP’s can be accessed via the following links:

Current Planning Proposals (Pre-gateway)

The following Planning Proposals have been submitted to Council for consideration but have either not been supported or have not proceeded to gateway determination at this stage. All the information submitted with the Planning Proposal is available for information only at this stage.

For a Planning Proposal to proceed, there must be a resolution from Council to support the proposal and forward it to the NSW Minister for Planning for a 'Gateway Determination'.

If there is a resolution to support the rezoning, you will have an opportunity to make a formal submission after a Gateway Determination has been issued and during the public exhibition period.
