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

Most other planning proposals and amendments to LEPs can be viewed in the State Government’s LEP Tracking System. Certain planning proposals (eg rezoning reviews) are considered by the Sydney West Central Planning Panel and can be viewed at  http://www.planningpanels.nsw.gov.au/

For further information regarding the planning proposal process refer to the State Government’s “A guide to preparing planning proposals”.
