Don't be counting your chickens yet on the RLEP


The Beagle Editor

Over recent weeks the Eurobodalla Council issued at least two media releases specifically about the Rural Local Environment Plan. In both the the mayor was made mention of. The mayor was interviewed on the local radio over the following days about the Rural Local Environment Plan (RLEP). LEP’s are Local Environment Plans that guide a range of things including residential living and allowable land use. The recent announcements made by the Eurobodalla Shire Council were mainly in relation to the State Government supporting a “Gateway” assessment or approval of what Eurobodalla Council submitted to the NSW Governments Office of Environment and Heritage ( Planning Department ),for consideration and approval.

There had been significant opposition by some rural dwellers to environment overlays being used in identified “E” zones or areas when development applications were lodged for what ever they were lodged for. Council lodged a submission with the State Government for Rural Lands future living and development consideration that excluded the “Environment Overlays “. There’s nothing wrong with that occurring either. But the reality is it’s a Rural LEP ( environment and development plan ) council is asking the Government to sign off on.

All proposed development plans, considerations or assessments include “environment” assessments and at times environmental conditions for any development to be approved .
