A Local Environmental Plan (LEP) is the principal legal document for guiding and controlling development at the local government level. An LEP controls how land is used and developed through zoning and development controls.

The Strathfield Local Environmental Plan (SLEP) 2012 was gazetted on 15 March 2013 and came into force on 29 March 2013. Additional provisions within the SLEP 2012 relate to the conservation of Strathfield's heritage, preservation of trees and vegetation, development within the Strathfield Town Centre and within the Parramatta Road Corridor, and protection of environmentally sensitive areas.
