A Planning Proposal is the formal process by which a Local Environmental Plan is amended.
These amendments may take various forms, such as:
Some Planning Proposals are initiated by Council, but most are initiated by a submission from an external applicant, usually a professional planning consultant, known as the Proponent.
Council resolved at the meeting of the Planning and Strategic Peak Committee of the Whole on 12 March 2014 to endorse new Council Templates for Planning Proposal Submissions and Guidelines. These have been prepared to assist proponents in the preparation of a Planning Proposal for consideration by Council. A Microsoft Word version of the template is provided together with a PDF version of the Guidelines.
Please note that, with adoption of the Wingecarribee Local Planning Strategy 2015-2031 on 23 March 2016, Council also adopted the Recommendations contained within it, including the following:
Defer, for a period of two (2) years, any submissions to rezone or reduce the minimum lot size for residential purposes, of any environmental or rural zoned land outside the current town and village boundaries.
In accordance with this adopted Recommendation, any Planning Proposal seeking to rezone or reduce the minimum lot size for residential purposes, of any environmental or rural zoned land outside the current town and village boundaries will not be supported at this time.
The adopted Strategy is currently with the NSW Department of Planning and Environment for Endorsement.
Please use this link to view the adopted Local Planning Strategy (internal link).
From 1 October 2008, section 147 (an extract may be viewed below) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment (EP&A) Act 1979 requires the disclosure of political donations and gifts when making submissions in respect of planning matters.
Please include Form 1 with your submission, even if your answer on that form is 'no'. If your answer is 'yes', you will also need to complete and lodge Form 2 with your submission.
