There will be no immediate changes to the status of the Hurstville Local Environment Plan (LEP), the Kogarah LEP, or current Development Control Plans (DCPs) that apply to each former local government area. These planning controls will remain in place until changed.
Guidance from the Department of Planning and Environment for merged councils indicates that the creation of new council-wide LEPs is not required until a newly elected council is in place. This may not necessarily involve a comprehensive new LEP, as an existing LEP can be expanded to become the principal instrument for the new Council area.
Council is undertaking an audit of the strategic and statutory plans, studies and planning processes for the eventual harmonisation of Local Environmental Plans and Development Control Plans.
