Comprehensive Local Environmental Plans (LEP)

Local Environmental Plans (LEP) are the principal legal document for controlling development at a Local Government level. The zoning provisions establish acceptability of uses and standards regulate the degree of development.

You can view the Narrabri Shire Council Local Environmental Plan at the below link:

Employment Zones LEP Amendments 

Employment zones commence within Narrabri Shire Council Local Environmental Plan on 26 April 2023. From 26 April 2023, in a document (other than a state environmental planning policy) a reference to a former zone under an environmental planning instrument is taken to include a reference to a new zone under the environmental planning instrument.

To determine the new zone for previously zoned Business and Industrial zoned land please refer to the Employment zones reform page on the NSW Government Planning website.

NB: Document means an Act, statutory or other instrument, contract or agreement, and includes a document issued or made under or for the purposes of an Act or statutory or other instrument.
