Planning Proposals (Rezoning Requests)
A planning proposal is a request to amend a Local Environmental Plan (LEP) through the ‘Gateway’ process.
LEPs provide the legislative framework for land use and development in a Local Government Area (LGA) through land use zones and planning controls. LEPs consist of a written instrument and a series of maps. Anyone wishing to propose an amendment to any LEP within the Cumberland Local Government Area should contact Council prior to lodging any application to discuss the rezoning process, information requirements and the merits of what is proposed.
