The Kyogle Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2012 is now the principal planning instrument for the Council area.
A new plan for the use and development of land within the Kyogle Council area has been introduced. The Kyogle Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2012 took effect on 11th February 2013 and is now the principal planning instrument for the Council area. The plan uses the format of the NSW Government’s Standard Instrument for LEPs. The Standard Instrument requires a consistent format for LEPs including standard land use zones, definitions and clauses.
The Kyogle LEP 2012 applies to all land within the Council area except those lands which are shown as ‘Deferred Matter’. Deferred Matter land continues to retain its zoning under the two Kyogle Interim Development Orders. This means that for some properties part of the land is zoned under the Kyogle LEP 2012 and part is zoned under one of the interim development orders. Where this occurs development applications submitted for the land will be required to address both planning instruments.
Under the Kyogle LEP 2012 there are a number of supporting maps including the standard land use zone maps. Supporting maps are:
Land Zoning Map – identifies the zoning of land.
Significant Resources Map – Identifies known regionally significant extractive industry resources. The map must be read in conjunction with clause 6.3 of the LEP.
Flood Planning Map – identifies known flood liable lands. The maps must be read in conjunction with clause 6.2 of the LEP.
Height of Buildings Map – identifies maximum permissible building heights for certain lands. The maps must be read in conjunction with clauses 4.3 and 5.6 of the LEP
Land Reservation Acquisition Map (no land has been identified for acquisition).
Lot Size Map – Identifies minimum permitted lot size. The maps must be read in conjunction with clauses 2.6, 4.1, 4.1AA, 4.2, 4.2A, 4.2B and 4.2C of the LEP.
Heritage Map – Identifies heritage items and heritage conservation areas. The maps must be read in conjunction with clause 5.10 of the LEP.
Terrestrial Biodiversity Map.
Development applications are required to be accompanied by a planning report that addresses all relevant maps and LEP provisions applying to the land that is the subject of the application.
