Essential information

The Department of Planning and Environment issued a Gateway determination, dated 25 October 2017, requiring community consultation for the proposed LEP amendment. The NSW Minister of Planning and Environment has delegated the making of the Plan to Council. That means that Council is the final decision body for this planning proposal.
