Local Environmental Plan

Every NSW local government area has a Local Environmental Plan (LEP).

Kiama LEP 2011 is our current planning tool that contains land zoning and land use controls for our municipality.

In the case of any inconsistencies, the State Environmental Planning Policies override the Kiama LEP 2011.

Kiama LEP 1996 is repealed for the entire municipality, except for the land identified as Deferred Matter under Clause 1.3(1A) of Kiama LEP 2011.
