NSW

Local Environmental Plans 

In NSW, Local Environmental Plans (LEPs) guide planning decisions for local government areas. Through zoning and development controls, they allow councils and other consent authorities to manage the ways in which land is used. LEPs are the primary planning tools that shape the future of communities.

In April, 4 councils across the State enacted a new LEP and as a result new zonings. 5 councils across the State amended their LEPs which affected zonings.

VICTORIA

Planning Scheme

In Victoria, a planning scheme is a legal instrument that sets out the provisions for land use and development. Victoria has 81 planning scheme areas and therefore has 81 planning schemes. Planning schemes are amended on a regular basis. A planning scheme amendment may involve a change to a planning scheme, which often includes rezonings.

Amendments can be:

  • C amendments (changes to council planning schemes only)
  • VC amendments (changes to VPP and council planning schemes)
  • V amendments (changes to VPP only).

ACT

Territory Plan

In the ACT, the Territory Plan is the key statutory planning document, providing the policy framework for administration of planning in the ACT. The purpose of the Territory Plan is to manage land use change and development. The Territory Plan includes a statement of strategic directions, a map (the Territory Plan Map) which sets out zones and precincts in the ACt, objectives and development tables applying to each zone. It also include structure plans and concept plans for the development of future urban areas.

The Territory Plan can be varied, subject to it being consistent with the National Capital Plan. Complex changes or changes that require policy changes are made via full variations to the Territory Plan. Technical changes to the Territory Plan are made by technical amendments.

In April,  the ACT Government rezoned land in 2 localities across the territory. Making technical amendments to the Territory Plan which affected zonings.
