Department of Planning to clarify Rural Lands Strategy

Eurobodalla Council has identified anomalies in the Rural Lands Strategy LEP, signed off by the NSW Government on Friday 11 October 2019.

Eurobodalla Mayor Liz Innes said Council staff had discovered a number of differences to its adopted position and to what senior Department of Planning Infrastructure and Environment staff and the Minister’s office advised would occur.

“We are currently awaiting further work by the Department to clarify the full extent of changes and their potential impact,” Clr Innes said, “certainly we were not advised of any changes to the planning proposal prior to the Minister for Planning’s sign-off”.

Clr Innes said Council sought clarification and, where appropriate, resolution about the discrepancies with both the Minister’s office and the Department late last week.

“I have personally spoken to the Departmental head Jim Betts who has given his assurance they are working to rectify the matter as soon as possible,” she said.

“Council is not in a position to comment further until the Department has been able to verify the exact implications and what can be done to rectify these changes.”
