Local Environment Plans (LEPs) to undergo change

Northern Beaches Council is reviewing how it applies conservation zones in our current Local Environment Plans (LEPs) to create a consistent approach to their use in the new Northern Beaches LEP.

Conservation zones are applied to land with significant environmental values or where there are significant hazards such as bushfire. These changes may affect what you can and can’t do on your property.

This review will help us establish which land areas are included in conservation zones and what development is permitted in these areas.

Support quality local news

Manly Observer is an experiment in providing non-sensationalist hyperlocal news on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. We cover the big news across the LGA, but with a hyper focus on the Manly electorate encompassing Balgowlah, Seaforth, Freshwater, Brookvale and Curl Curl up to Dee Why. It is run by those living in the community for the benefit of an informed community. We care about an informed and connected community. That’s it. Simple. Thank you for your support in keeping quality local news alive!
