Background

In March 2018, the State Government released the Greater Sydney Region Plan – A Metropolis of Three Cities, and the Western City District Plan, which includes the Camden LGA.

The District Plan is structured around the themes of:

  • Infrastructure and Collaboration;
  • Liveability;
  • Productivity; and
  • Sustainability

In accordance with the District Plan and changes to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (the Act), all councils are required to review and update their Local Environmental Plans and prepare Local Strategic Planning Statements (LSPS). This project will be known as the Comprehensive LEP Review 2020 and will be undertaken over the next two years.

The first step in the LEP Review project is to prepare the Camden LSPS, which sets out:

  • the 20-year vision for land use in the Camden LGA;
  • the special local characteristics which contribute to local identity;
  • shared community values to be maintained and enhanced; and
  • how growth and change will be managed into the future.

Council is currently engaging with the community to develop the Local Strategic Planning Statement.

The second step in the Camden LEP Review project is to undertake a formal review of the Camden LEP 2010.

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.

The review of the Camden LEP 2010 will be undertaken later in 2019 and Council will seek input into any proposed changes to the Local Environmental Plan at a future date.
