Before making an application to Council for an amendment to the Local Environmental Plan (LEP) applying to the local government area of the Council, it is recommended that persons attend a pre-lodgement meeting with Council’s strategic planners to discuss the proposed changes to the LEP and any associated or consequential Development Control Plan changes.

Pre-lodgement meetings allow applicants to discuss the nature of their proposal and gain a better understanding about the process and required documentation in support of their application.

Pre-lodgement meetings are held on a Wednesday morning at 9:30am, 10:30am and 11:30am.  For details about what information should be submitted prior to your pre-lodgement meeting, please refer to Council’s Pre-Lodgement Meeting fact sheet.  To request a pre-lodgement meeting, please complete the Pre-Lodgement Meeting request form and return to

Initial consultation with council staff will provide an understanding of the issues that need to be addressed in a LEP amendment request.
