Proposing to rezone land or change development standards (i.e. building height, floor-space ratio, changing heritage status) is a formal planning process. This process is called a Planning Proposal and is the first step in preparing or amending a Local Environmental Plan. A planning proposal is a document that explains the intended effect of a proposed LEP and sets out the justification for making or amending a plan.
For more information, please read Strathfield Council’s Guidelines for Preparing Planning Proposal.
This document contains detailed information about preparing Planning Proposals, including required contents, lodgement, assessment, and anticipated fees and timeframes.
