Our Local Environmental Plans and Development Control Plans

Local Environmental Plans

The Lismore Local Environmental Plan (LEP) controls and guides proposed development. It contains land-use zones, development standards and other matters to consider when assessing potential development.

There are also a range of provisions relating to flooding, heritage, subdivision, vegetation removal etc.

The LEP 2012 applies to all land in the LGA excluding areas affected by the Ministerial review into Environmental Protection Zones E2 and E3. The Lismore LEP 2000 will continue to apply in these areas until the review is complete.
