Local Environmental Plan

A Local Environmental Plan (LEP) is a legal instrument which outlines the planning controls for a local government area in NSW. An LEP splits land into categories known as ‘zones’ which permit certain uses and not others. Examples of the types of zones used are IN1 (General Industrial) where industries are encouraged and dwellings are limited and R1 (General Residential) where conversely, dwellings are encouraged and industries are limited.

The current Narromine LEP was gazetted by the Minister in 2011.

The aims of the LEP are as follows:

  1. This Plan aims to make local environmental planning provisions for land in Narromine in accordance with the relevant standard environmental planning instrument under section 33A of the Act.
  2. The particular aims of this Plan are as follows:
    1. to encourage economic development through tourism activities, business, employment initiatives and fostering industry growth,
    2. to protect and conserve the natural environment including surface and ground water, soil, air and native vegetation by encouraging sustainable development,
    3. to encourage sustainable agricultural practices, including intensive agriculture, by minimising land use conflicts and facilitating farm adjustments.
