Randwick LEP Review 2022

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Randwick City Council has developed a draft Comprehensive Planning Proposal (CPP) to update the Randwick Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2012.

The Randwick CPP seeks to amend the Randwick LEP to align with the strategic direction and planning priorities of state, metropolitan and local strategies, as directed by the NSW Government.

What is a Local Environmental Plan (LEP)?

An LEP provides the framework for the way land can be developed and used; setting rules for building heights, zones, permissible land uses, building density and lot sizes.

Why are we changing the LEP?

LEPs need to be reviewed periodically to ensure they meet best planning practice and are aligned with community values and the directions of state plans, including the Greater Sydney Region Plan, Eastern City District Plan and Randwick Local Strategic Planning Statement 2040.

Council is under direction by the NSW Government to meet mandated housing targets. While Council objects to mandated housing targets, Council has responded by identifying areas where new growth can be accommodated in a sustainable and balanced way.

What are the proposed changes?
