Updates to the draft Inner West Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2020


Following the public exhibition of the draft Inner West LEP 2020 in April this year, the Urban Strategy Team updated some of the proposals in response to community feedback before the documents went to a Council meeting.

At the 9 June 2020 Council Meeting, Council resolved to defer consideration of the draft Inner West LEP 2020 until the 23 June 2020.
