Belmont Contributions Catchment Land Acquisition Amendment

No longer on display. Expired on 23 June 2022, 12:00 AM


The draft Local Environmental Plan (LEP) amendment seeks to remove the land reservation acquisition layer off properties, and on certain properties, land will be rezoned. These are as follows: rezoning from SP2 Infrastructure to C2 Environmental Conservation, from RE1 Public Recreation to C3 Environmental Management, and from RE1 Public Recreation to RE2 Private Recreation. The changes will enable future financial sustainability of Council, and rezoning to better reflect the current uses of land. Mapping and words in the Planning Proposal mention conservation zones as E zones, for example E2 Environmental Conservation. Since that Planning Proposal was started, the Local Environmental Plan was altered so that E zones are C zones.


Of the draft Amendment to the Lake Macquarie Local Environmental Plan 2014 is from 25 May 2022 to 22 June 2022 at Council’s Customer Service Centre, 126-138 Main Road Speers Point – 8am to 5pm on weekdays and at the following Lake Macquarie Libraries: Belmont and Swansea, during opening hours and online as listed above.
