The Planning Proposal

The objective of the proposed LEP amendment is as follows:

  1. To reclassify Part of Reserve R87120 from ‘’Community land’’ to ‘’Operational Land’’.

The land has been historically used for vehicular access.  Upon re-classification, it is also intended to declare the land as a public road, to ensure ongoing access for the general public, as well as ongoing legal access to an adjoining parcel of private land.

The Planning Proposal and other required documents will be available for viewing at the Council Administration Centre Bellingen and the Bellingen Library from Thursday 28 March 2019 until Friday 26 April 2019. A copy of the Planning Proposal will also be available for viewing on Council’s engagement website, Create.

Council invites interested parties to make a written submission regarding the Planning Proposal. Submissions will be received up until 4.30pm on Friday 26 April 2019.

In this instance, Council has not been provided with delegated authority to make the LEP as the approval of the Governor is required.

The Relevant Planning Authority (RPA) for the Planning Proposal is Bellingen Shire Council. Written submissions should be addressed to;

The General Manager
Bellingen Shire Council
PO Box 117
