Council forwarded the necessary Planning Proposal documentation to the NSW Department of Planning and Environment to finalise the Planning Proposal process under Section 3.36 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979. As a result, Local Environmental Plan Amendment No. 13 was notified on the NSW Government legislation website on Friday, 31 August 2018. The notification details can be viewed at - http://www.legislation.nsw.gov.au/maintop/epub.

As such the Local Environmental Plan Amendment process is complete and Council can now accept applications for detached dual occupancy development on land zoned RU2 Rural Landscape.
