File Ref                            Ashfield LEP


Prepared by                   Ron Sim - Manager Strategic Planning & Projects       





As Council will be aware, Council considered a report on the Urban Planning Strategy and

LEP project on 28 September 2010. This explained that once the Strategy was adopted it was necessary to conduct workshops with Councillors to develop a new Standard Instrument Local Environmental Plan (SI LEP).


The purpose of the meeting is to give an overview of the SI LEP template, eg its concepts,   terms used, definitions, and procedures for making LEPs.  Discussion will also take place on when to consider LEP rezoning requests.  This meeting will be the first of a series of meetings to develop the SI LEP.


In attendance will be a representative from JBA, and Council’s town planning officers
