Knowledge is power. I believe the LEP Progress Report is an essential resource and I would like to share this with you.
This unique report provides an update on the progress made by New South Wales Councils in the preparation of their new Local Environmental Plans (LEPs). All 152 Councils in NSW were surveyed on their progress, and the results have been produced in this unique report. To my knowledge such a report has not been produced, which makes the release of this report even more exclusive.
The benefits to various stakeholders has been summarised below;
Property owners and buyers- identify key planning controls which they can utilise to renovate or redevelop the property.
Urban planners, architects and other consultants- the updates can be used to provide guidance to clients who own properties and in preparing a Development Application
Developers- to inform them of changes to planning controls which could affect their properties.
Councils- can check how other councils are progressing with their new LEPs in their locality.
-A total of 137 Councils out of 152 responded to the research, or 90% of all Councils
-16 Councils have had their new LEPs completed
-Seven Councils are waiting for their LEPs to be approved by the Minister for Planning
-The majority of Councils have commenced work on their new LEP
