Clarence Valley Lep 2011
The Clarence Valley Local Environmental Plan 2011 (CVLEP 2011) has received final approval and commenced from its notification on the NSW Legislation website on 23 December 2011. It replaces 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) has received final approval and commenced as of notification on the NSW Legislation website on 23 December 2011. It replaces all local environmental plans previously applied to the Local Government Area.
This website will be updated early 2012. In the meantime, the now rescinded instruments and maps have been removed and references to the previous instruments and planning maps should be disregarded. Council appreciates the public's patience, especially in regard to the planning maps accessed at Clarence On-line Mapping.
The previous planning instruments that no longer have effect are:
- Ulmarra Local Environmental Plan 1992
- Nymboida Local Environmental Plan1986
- Grafton Local Environmental Plan 1988
- Copmanhurst Local Environmental Plan 1990
- Richmond River Local Environmental Plan 1992
- Maclean Local Environmental Plan 2001
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 These controls replace all previous tree preservation orders which are also rescinded upon commencement of the CVLEP 2011.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.
