Council is currently inviting feedback on a Planning Proposal to amend the Waverley Local Environmental Plan 2012 (LEP). I wish to advise that the Planning Proposal (PP) will be on public exhibition from Wednesday 19 February to Friday 20 March 2020.

A housekeeping review of the WLEP2012 ensures that the plan remains responsive to emerging planning matters, inconsistencies and errors. The amendments in the Planning Proposal have been identified and addressed as a result of previous Council legal advice and internal feedback from Council’s Development Assessment and Urban Planning, Policy and Strategy departments in 2018.
