Environmental Zones Review
Council is committed to demonstrating a clear process for establishing the principles and criteria for identifying land suitability and recommending future zoning.
As part of Planning our Sustainable Future, we are undertaking a review of existing land use zones used in the four current Local Environment Plans (LEPs).
We know our community is passionate about protecting the environment, so we would like your involvement in the review of Environmental Zones (also known as E Zones).
The Environmental Zones Review will help us establish which land areas are included in, or excluded from, Environmental Zones. It will also identify a criteria, proposed land uses and include mapping of proposed zones.
We’ll be providing a range of opportunities for you to get involved and provide feedback during the review.
