Coffs Harbour Local Environmental Plan (LEP) guides planning decisions made by the City of Coffs Harbour (City). The making and/or amendment of the LEP can be complex and lengthy, depending on the likely impacts.
Any person proposing an amendment to the LEP is required to discuss the proposal with the City before lodging an application, by attending a pre-lodgment meeting.
This is to ensure that the proposal aligns with the City's strategic plans and NSW legislation.
Local Environmental Plans are updated and/or reviewed via the rezoning process. There are five steps in the process:
3. Community Consultation
5. The making of the LEP
Further details on the rezoning process and Resources for Plan Making / Tracking can be found on the NSW Planning, Industry and Environment Website.
