In This Section
All Councils within NSW are required by law to have a Local Environmental Plan (LEP).
A LEP is a legal document under Part 3 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment (EP&A) Act 1979.
Shoalhaven Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2014 details the rules and guidelines for the management and control of development in our city and region through land zoning.
It specifies what development types are permissible in each zone, including their legal definitions, and sets out the key development standards and provisions to address local land constraints.
Jerberra Estate has its own Local Environmental Plan (LEP) which includes planning provisions specifically for this area.
A handful of land in Shoalhaven is “deferred” from the Shoalhaven LEP 2014. The Shoalhaven Local Environmental Plan 1985 applies to development within certain “deferred areas” within the Shoalhaven (Culburra Beach, Wollumboola, Kinghorn and Callala Bay). The Shoalhaven Interim Development Order No.1 applies to part of the "deferred" land at Sussex Inlet.
