Palerang Local Environment Plan
Palerang Council is developing a draft LEP that will put on public exhibition early in 2010. A number of residents in rural residential areas have raised concerns that their land is to be zoned E4 — Environmental Living, rather than the more suitable zone of RU4 - Rural Small Holdings.
BURRA has produced a discussion paper to give a brief overview of the Working Draft of the new Local Environmental Plan currently being discussed by Palerang Council and to highlight some issues relating to the contents of the document as they apply to Burra and Urila.
Palerang Council will be holding a series of Extraordinary Council meetings to consider the Draft LEP before it goes on public exhibition. The next meeting is to be held on 25 March in Braidwood, and another meeting in Bungendore on 8 April. Ratepayers and residents are encouraged to attend and give their views to our elected representatives. For a list of future meetings, see the Palerang Council website.
