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?
Snowy Monaro Regional Council was established on 12 May 2016. The former Council LEPs are still current for the former Shire areas and as such land use within Snowy Monaro Regional Council is guided by three Local Environmental Plans (LEPs).
The LEPs set out the type of future development allowed in each location.
A Development Control Plan (DCP) is a detailed guideline that illustrates the controls that apply to a particular type of development or in a particular area. Development Control Plans, prepared in accordance with the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, are used to help achieve the objectives of a Local Environmental Plan or Regional Environmental Plan by providing specific, comprehensive requirements for certain types of development or locations e.g. for urban design, and heritage precincts and properties
The former Council DCPs are still current for the former Shire areas.
Please note that meetings may be subject to a charge in accordance with Council's adopted fees & charges.
