The Nebraska Estate subdivision (DP9699) at St. Georges Basin was registered in 1919 and is currently zoned RU2 Rural Landscape under Shoalhaven LEP 2014. Dwellings are generally not permissible on the individual lots due the 40 hectare lot size requirement.

DPE's Gateway determination requires an Integrated Water Cycle Assessment to be completed before the PP can be publicly exhibited. This Assessment has been completed and Council is currently preparing a draft Development Control Plan (DCP) chapter. The DCP chapter will provide detailed, site-specific planning provisions to guide development in the Estate. The intention is to exhibit the draft DCP and PP together to enable the community to provide feedback on the full package of draft planning controls. Council is currently liaising with the State Government to ensure the draft planning controls consider and address the state's new biodiversity laws which commenced in August 2017.
