Local Environment Plans

Local Environmental Plans (LEPs) provide the main legal (or statutory) document for planning and development within the Snowy Monaro Region. 

The LEP comprises the written Instrument and a range of maps including land zoning, floor space ratio, height of buildings, protection of trees and heritage conservation, as well as a number of other environmental requirements. Details of the Snowy Monaro Region, LEPs can be found at the link below.

Local Environment Plans

The process of amending an LEP is referred to as a Planning Proposal and is required as part of the plan making process. 

A planning proposal may deal with a minor change to an existing LEP or it may aim to introduce a new precinct or Council-wide LEP.
