Planning Proposals

A Planning Proposal is a document that explains the intended effect of, and justification for, a proposed change to the Kiama Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2011.

An applicant or consultant can prepare a Planning Proposal and submit it to Council (fees apply).

However, Council and the Department of Planning and Environment must endorse it for it to take effect.
