Environmental planning instruments (known as EPIs) provide controls and requirements for specific land use types and localities.
There are two types of environmental planning instruments, being state environmental planning policies (known as SEPPs) and local environmental plans (known as LEPs).
State environmental planning policies are prepared by the State Government. They provide for development permissibility and set controls for developments or matters that are of importance to the whole State.
You can view SEPPs that are in force here.
Local environmental plans are prepared by councils. They zone land, provide for development permissibility and set local controls. Local environmental plans guide planning decisions for local government areas. They do this through zoning and development standards and requirements, which provides a framework for the way land can be used.
