How does an owner request Council to consider a proposal to amend the Singleton LEP 2013?

A formal process (Pre-Gateway Review process) applies to requests made to Council to amend the Singleton LEP 2013:

  • Payment of the “Pre-gateway review of LEP amendment request” fee in accordance with Council’s adopted fees and charges;
  • Lodgement of a completed Pre-gateway review of LEP amendment request form;
  • Lodgement of complete documentation as identified on the Pre-gateway review of LEP amendment request form.

Once a request for a pre-gateway review has been lodged, it will generally proceed through the following process (timeframes are indicative only):

  • Documents registered into Council’s record keeping system, acknowledgment letter sent to applicant and request allocated to processing officer for review (generally within 10 business days of initial lodgement);
  • Processing officer inspects the site subject of the LEP amendment request and reviews the LEP amendment proposal against relevant legislation, strategies, planning directions and guidelines to determine whether the proposal contains sufficient information to determine whether the proposal has merit and whether processing of the request should be supported.
  • Processing officer issues written advice to the applicant (generally within 40 business days of being allocated the LEP amendment request) that:
    • the LEP amendment request is considered to have merit; or 
    • the LEP amendment request is not supported.
