Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979

Exhibition of Draft Hawkesbury Local Environmental Plan 2009
Standard Instrument Local Environmental Plan

Council has prepared a draft local environmental plan in accordance with the NSW Government’s Standard Instrument (Local Environmental Plans) Order 2006 (as amended).

In general terms the draft local environmental plan:

* adopts the standardised zonings, definitions, mapping, format and clauses required by the Standard Instrument
* includes amended exempt and complying development schedules
* classifies a number of Council owned lands as “operational”
* incorporates current draft Hawkesbury Local Environmental Plan 1989 Amendments 48, 115 and 156. This affects land within the vicinity of Bridge Street and Macquarie Street, Windsor (Hawkesbury Valley Holden), 84 – 112 Mulgrave Road, Mulgrave (Mushroom Substrate Production Facility) and 739 George Street, South Windsor (Windsor District Baptist Church)
* corrects anomalies in the Hawkesbury LEP 1989 written instrument and maps, in regard to heritage item descriptions, wetland locations, National Parks, open spaces, minor mapping errors.

Once finalised the plan will replace Hawkesbury Local Environmental Plan 1989 (as amended) and will affect all land within the Hawkesbury Local Government Area. It is Council's intent that, as much as possible, the plan will not substantially change the existing land use planning rules and will not make any significant changes to the underlying permitted or prohibited land uses or any changes to the minimum lot size provisions in the City of Hawkesbury.

The draft plan and supporting documentation including a list of Frequently Asked Questions is on public exhibition 8.30am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday at the Council offices 366 George Street, Windsor for the period Friday 5 February 2010 to Monday 12 April 2010.

SEPP 55 provides a State-wide planning framework for the remediation of contaminated land to reduce possible risk of harm to human health or any other aspect of the environment.
