Planning Proposals

A planning proposal, also known as a rezoning application, is a request to amend a Local Environmental Plan (LEP) through the 'Gateway' process.

LEPs are the legislative framework guiding the development of land in a local government area through land use zones and development controls. They allow councils to manage land use and development. LEPs consist of a written instrument and a series of maps.

There are two LEPs that apply to the Parramatta local government area, being the Parramatta City Centre LEP 2007 and the Parramatta LEP 2011.


Fees applicable to Planning Proposals are set out in a Schedule of Fees & Charges (page 83 of the document).
