How much of my site should be landscaped?

The landscaped area requirements for a site are detailed in clause 6.6 of the Mosman LEP 2012. (The landscaped area clause was reintroduced into the LEP in December 2014).

The minimum landscaped area requirement applies only to residential zoned land. The landscaped area required ranges from 25% to 50% of the site area depending on the size of the site and the type of development that is proposed. Generally, the larger the site or where more than one dwelling is proposed, the greater the landscaped area required.

Note – Landscaped area is defined in Mosman Local Environmental Plan 2012 and means a part of a site used for growing plants, grasses and trees but does not include any building structure or hard paved area.
