Bushland Sites Rezoning – Public Exhibition

Council is proposing to amend the Mosman Local Environmental Plan 2012 (the LEP) to rezone 16 bushland sites from RE1 – Public Recreation to E2 – Environmental Conservation.

The sites proposed to be rezoned were part of a thorough review and assessment of bushland sites in Mosman that was undertaken between January 2014 and May 2015. The review concluded that these sites contain good quality bushland and remnant vegetation and should be rezoned to E2 – Environmental Conservation in order to provide a greater level of protection to areas of potentially high ecological, social and aesthetic values and to prohibit development that could have an adverse effect on those values.

The Minister for Planning has chosen to delegate the making of the LEP to Council.

You can stay informed about the progress of this Planning Proposal at www.mosmanplanning.net.
