Randwick Draft LEP 2012
This consultation has concluded.
Note: This public exhibition and consultation has now closed.
Randwick Council at its ordinary meeting of 22 May 2012 resolved to forward the draft Randwick Local Environmental Plan (draft LEP), as amended by the resolutions of that meeting, to the Department of Planning and Infrastructure for legal drafting and finalisation. The Plan comes into effect once the Minister approves the LEP and it then replaces the Randwick LEP 1998 (Consolidation). For further information on the status of the draft LEP including report, draft plan, maps and supporting information on the post-exhibition of the draft LEP can be seen on Council's website.
The draft Randwick LEP 2012 was exhibited in accordance with the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979. It was placed on exhibition for 40 days from 21 February to 2 April and Council received and reviewed approximately 3,500 submissions.
Council distributed brochures to the City's 55,000 households and advertised in the local newspaper. Council held 5 drop-in sessions during the exhibition period to give residents the chance to speak directly to staff. It also created this special website to provide all relevant information and provide an on-line submissions capability.
The library on this site has copies of all written submissions on the draft Randwick LEP.
A Local Environment Plan(LEP) is the main legal document that controls how land is used and developed in a local government area. It determines what can be built, where it can be built and what activities can occur on the land.

Randwick City Council last night voted to rezone a parcel of land, known as the Chinese Market Gardens, from residential 2(b) to RU4, primary production, which will see the market gardens continue to operate on the site.
This rezoning, as part of Council’s Local Environmental Plan (LEP), recognised and endorsed the current use of the land, and will now be submitted to the State Minister for Planning for gazettal.
However, Council also noted that the Eastern Suburbs Memorial Park (ESMP) had lodged a planning proposal seeking to make cemetery use permissible over part of the market gardens site. This planning proposal will be assessed by Council officers in due course, and any change in the use of the site would require future rezoning which would require a separate community consultation process.
