Land use control and planning within Snowy Monaro Regional Council is administered by both Council and the State Government.

How is the region planned by Council?

Land use within Snowy Monaro Regional Council is principally guided by the Snowy River Local Environmental Plan 2013. This LEP covers all areas of the Shire, and sets out the type of future development allowed in each location.

Snowy River Development Control Plan 2013 contains more detailed controls for development and provides explanations of the relevant controls in the Snowy River Shire Local Environmental Plans.

Snowy Monaro Regional Council is currently working toward a Principle Plan within the next four years.
