Amendments to Kogarah LEP 2012

A Local Environmental Plan (LEP) is a legal document which controls land use and development in a local government area. A LEP contains information such as land use zones, building heights, heritage items and local conditions, such as landscaping.

Prior to 8 October 2021, the Kogarah LEP (KLEP) 2012 had applied to the Kogarah Bay and Blakehurst Wards. 

The following is a list of amendments to the KLEP 2012:
