Lodging a planning proposal
If you are seeking a change in the zoning of your property or wish to undertake development that is prohibited within the zone, a ‘Planning Proposal’ will be required to be prepared for your property.
A preliminary meeting must be held with Council's Strategic Land Use Planners prior to lodgement, to ascertain whether the Planning Proposal is likely to be supported by Council and the Department of Planning, Industry & Environment.
Any Planning Proposal submitted to Council is required to be prepared in accordance with the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment's Guide to Preparing LEP’s and Guide to Preparing Planning Proposals.
It must be accompanied by a completed Form 149 - Planning Proposal Application.
Should Council resolve to formally support a Planning Proposal, it will then be forwarded to the NSW Department of Planning and Environment, who will determine whether the Proposal has sufficient merit to proceed. This part of the process is called "The Gateway".
