Archaeological Sites Amendments to the LEP

Proposed amendments to archaeological sites considered at Council meeting

Council’s proposal to amend the listing of archaeological sites identified in Mosman Local Environmental Plan 2012 (the LEP) was considered at the Council Meeting held on 3 May 2016. This proposal seeks to include more specific site and property information in the LEP in relation to existing archaeological sites to provide certainty for landowners and Council.

A few archaeological sites will be subject to further review

In response to submissions received during public exhibition of the proposal in November-December last year, Council resolved to proceed with the amendments but with some changes, including to defer consideration of archaeological sites located on privately owned land in Avenue Road and Royalist Road. These sites, which include former quarries and tram infrastructure, will be the subject of further detailed review shortly.

It is anticipated that amendments to the LEP relating to the majority of the archaeological sites will be made by June 2016.
