Public exhibition of the planning proposal

Woollahra Council has exhibited a planning proposal in relation to a heritage housekeeping amendment to amend the Woollahra Local Environmental Plan 2014(External link) (Woollahra LEP 2014).

The purpose of the planning proposal is to explain the intended effect of an amendment to the Woollahra LEP 2014. An LEP is a legal instrument that zones land and includes standards and controls to regulate the use and nature of development and the management of land. An LEP can also address matters of heritage conservation.

The amendment to the Woollahra LEP 2014 involves correcting minor errors and anomalies that have been identified in Schedule 5 of the Woollahra LEP 2014 and the associated heritage mapping.

A detailed description of the proposed amendments is included in the supporting documents to the planning proposal.

Council has been authorised to use its delegation under section 3.36 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979(External link) to approve the LEP. The Department of Planning and Environment has classified this planning proposal as 'basic' as described in the Local Environmental Plan Making Guidelines(External link) (Department of Planning and Environment, 2021).

The planning proposal will proceed through a public exhibition phase and, subject to the Council’s decision after considering submissions, a draft LEP will be prepared to amend the Woollahra LEP 2014.

The public exhibition was open from Wednesday 20 July 2022 to Friday 19 August 2022.
