The Planning Proposal has been prepared under relevant legislation, including section 55 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979. The proposed amendment to Council’s planning controls will change the zone of the nominated sites from rural to special purpose tourist and environmental management.
Preparation of the Planning Proposal is consistent with the key implementation actions identified in Port Macquarie-Hastings Council’s local growth plan; Port Macquarie-Hastings Urban Growth Management Strategy 2011-2031.
Port Macquarie-Hastings Council and the NSW Department of Planning, and Infrastructure, will assess the proposal and, subject to consultation with state agencies, the planning proposal forms the basis for public participation in the proposed LEP amendment.
A Gateway Determination, allowing the Planning Proposal to proceed has been issued by the NSW government. A copy of the Determination is included in the community engagement material for public exhibition.
