The Clarence Valley Local Environmental Plan 2011 (CVLEP 2011) took effect on 23 December 2011. It replaced all local environmental plans that previously applied to the Local Government Area. Council's Development Control Plans are also amended as a consequence, including the introduction of new clearing controls in the residential zones.
The Clarence Valley Local Environmental Plan 2011 (CVLEP 2011) commenced upon notification on the NSW Legislation website on 23 December 2011. It replaces all local environmental plans previously applied to the Local Government Area.
Mapping associated with the CVLEP – land use zonings, minimum lot sizes, height of buildings, heritage, flooding and a range of other miscellaneous planning controls – can be accessed at Clarence On-line Mapping.
Council's Development Control Plans (DCPs) have also been amended with these amendments taking effect from the commencement of the CVLEP 2011. These amendments were necessary to ensure consistency with the CVLEP 2011.
The amendments to the DCPs also include new controls for clearing of native vegetation in the residential zones (including what have previously been known as rural residential zones). These controls replace all previous tree preservation orders which are also rescinded upon commencement of the CVLEP 2011. A fact sheet summarising the new clearing controls is available from Council.
