Council approval for exhibit LEP

BYRON Shire Council's controversial draft Local Environmental Plan will go on public exhibition for 60 days from Monday, September 24.

The draft plan had been given the green light for exhibition from the Department of Planning and Infrastructure, said council's head of planning, Ray Darney.

"The draft LEP has been prepared under the state template which aims to introduce a standardised land- use format throughout NSW," Mr Darney said.

Under the new LEP, the title of land use zones would change, he said.

Mr Darney said staff were preparing a consultation schedule to provide opportunities for landowners to meet staff to discuss any concerns they may have.

A clause on coastal risk planning has been deleted and land proposed to be zoned E2 within coastal areas deferred, following a recommendation from state planners.

"As a result, the current LEP 1988 will continue to apply to those coastal areas," he said.
