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:
