Local Environmental Plan

The Lord Howe Island Local Environmental Plan 2010 (LEP) is made under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 and controls planning and development on the Island.

The LEP makes reference to maps deposited in the office of the Board. These maps are available for public access as follows:

Sheet 1 - Land Application and Land Zoning Map PDF 536 KB

Sheet 2 - Land Zoning Map (Settlement Area) PDF 407 KB

Sheet 3 - Significant Native Vegetation Map PDF 548 KB

The LEP was gazetted on 12 March 2010, and repeals the Lord Howe Island REP 2005.

A comprehensive review of the LEP will be made in 2012-2013. For further information please contact the Manager Environment & Community Development on (02) 6563 2066.
