The new Cumberland Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2021 came into effect on 5 November 2021. The Cumberland LEP 2021 provides a unified set of controls that effectively replaces the following three LEPs that applied to the Cumberland Local Government Area (LGA):
LEP guides planning decisions for local government areas. It provides the legislative framework for land use and development in a LGA through land use zones and planning controls. LEP consists of a written instrument and a series of maps. NSW legislation will be publishing the Cumberland LEP 2021 and its maps and these are currently being updated.
