Local Environment Plans

A Local Environmental Plan (LEP) is the principal legal document for controlling development in a Local Government Area (LGA). Councils prepare LEPs to establish different zones that allow certain types of uses and standards that regulate what kind of development can happen.

In the Camden LGA, development is controlled by Camden Local Environmental Plan 2010 (Camden LEP 2010). It was gazetted on 3 September 2010.

The LEP applies to all land within the Camden LGA except land at Oran Park, Turner Road (Gledswood Hills and Gregory Hills), parts of Catherine Field and Leppington. This land falls under State Environmental Planning Policy (Sydney Region Growth Centres) 2006 (the Growth Centres SEPP).

Camden LEP 2010 is supported by nine sets of maps. Each set of maps consists of map ‘tiles’ that cover the LGA.

The nine sets of maps are:

  • Land Application Map
  • Land Zoning Map
  • Floor Space Ratio Map
  • Height of Buildings Map
  • Minimum Lot Size Map
  • Heritage Map
  • Land Reservation Acquisition Map
  • Urban Release Areas Map
  • Additional Permitted Uses Map
