Gwydir Local Environmental Plan

 A Local Environmental Plan, often referred to as an LEP, is the principle statutory planning document prepared by Council under the requirements of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, to guide planning decisions for the Local Government Area (LGA). The plan allows Council to manage the ways in which land may be used through zoning and development standards.

The local environment plan (LEP) is a legal instrument that guides planning decisions for local government areas.  They do this through zoning and development controls, which provide a framework for the way land can be used.  The LEP is prepared by Council and approved by the State Government.
