The Board has commenced a staged review of the LHI Local Environmental Plan 2010 (the LEP).
Stage 1 of the review process involves a number of known and more straightforward amendments to the plan.
A longer second stage of the review will address the potential for more fundamental and complex changes to the planning controls such as restrictions on the number of dwellings and tourist accommodation.
The Board has prepared a Discussion Paper which outlines some suggested issues for discussion as part of the stage 1 of the review. The Discussion Paper and a Community Survey be distributed to all Island residents. The survey can also be completed online.
Liz Coker and Louise Bochner from RPS Australia will also be holding drop-in information sessions for the community to discuss the issues, ask questions and provide feedback at the LHI Museum on:
Thursday 7th April: 9am -12 noon and 3pm-5.30pm
Friday 8th April: 9am-12 noon and 3pm-5.30pm
The Board would like to encourage early input to the planning review.
Feedback from consultation will be reviewed and together with input from relevant government agencies will inform the development of a formal planning proposal to amend the LEP. The proposed amendments will then be formally publicly advertised and exhibited under the requirements of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act.
