Definitions of development types are included in the LEP and the Model Provisions 1980 adopted by the LEP. To work out whether a particular development is permitted within a particular area, you should contact Council to find out how the area is zoned under the LEP. You can either view the LEP and Model Provisions on Council's website (see links below), or look at it over the counter at Council's Administrative Building.
