Local Environmental Plan

The Local Environmental Plan (LEP) is the legal planning document, which comprises of documents and associated maps for Federation Council's Local Government Area and provides the rules and guidelines for the control of land (both private and public) through zoning. It aims to reduce possible conflict between adjoining land uses and ensures there is adequate land to meet the diverse needs of a viable region.

The LEP aims to reinforce the importance of the existing business districts, provide for a variety of residential uses across the city, as well as control development in the outer rural areas. In addition, the LEP fosters a considered approach to infrastructure, transport and community planning, as well as anticipating social and economic trends and the need to protect the environment.

Council is still operating with the former Corowa Shire Council and Urana Shire Council LEPs, which are available here:

Federation Council has endorsed a Planning Proposal to amend Corowa Local Environmental Plan 2012. The Planning Proposal and other relevant exhibition documents are now on public exhibition in accordance with the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, 1979.

Copies are available from Federation Council's Corowa Office, 100 Edward Street, Corowa and can be viewed in the Related Information section below.

The proposal seeks to rezone certain land from B2 Local Centre to B4 Mixed Use to allow greater flexibility in land use and development on the fringes of the Corowa, Howlong and Mulwala town centres.

Submissions will be received until close of business Friday, 14 July 2017 and should be addressed to Kate Larnach, Manager Planning & Environment, PO Box 77, Corowa NSW 2646 or via email on council@federationcouncil. nsw.gov.au

The Minister for Planning delegated plan making powers for this proposal to Federation Council.
