What is a planning proposal?

    A planning proposal is a document and supporting information that explains the intended effect and justification of a proposed Local Environmental Plan (LEP) or amendment to an LEP.

    In this case, the planning proposal seeks to amend the LEP 2014 by rezoning land at 482 Bushells Ridge Road, Wyee from SP2 Infrastructure to R2 Low Density Residential. Through this amendment, the planning proposal seeks to facilitate residential development on land no longer needed for wastewater treatment infrastructure within the Radcliffe residential estate in Wyee.

    What would the planning proposal permit?

    The planning proposal would permit additional housing close to services and transport. The land has an area of approximately 5.234 ha and could accommodate up to 10 allotments with a variety of smaller lots sizes under the Small Lot housing provisions in LEP2014.
