Separation of Parramatta and The Hills from The Hills LEP (1/2017/PLP)

Submissions Close 26 June 2017

As a result of the State-wide Council Boundary Review process in May 2016, the Hills Shire Council area was reduced, with part of The Hills Shire becoming part of the new City of Parramatta Council Local Government Area.

This means that LEP 2012 is currently being administered by two Councils.  The planning proposal seeks an administrative amendment to The Hills Local Environmental Plan 2012 to:

  • Create a new local environmental plan and associated maps which will be known as The Hills Local Environmental Plan 2017 and which will apply to land within The Hills Local Government Area.
  • Amend The Hills Local Environmental Plan 2012 and associated maps so that it only applies to land formerly in The Hills Local Government Area, now in the City of Parramatta. This instrument will continue to be known as The Hills Local Environmental Plan 2012.

The separation of LEP 2012 into two plans will allow both Councils to manage the ongoing planning framework independently. The proposal is an administrative amendment only and there is no proposal to change the planning controls that currently apply to land within The Hills Shire or the City of Parramatta.

Delegation for making of the LEP 2012 has been issued to Council under the Gateway Determination.
