Kempsey Local Environmental Plan 2013 (Draft Amendment No. 27) ‘Housekeeping’ Amendments

Council has prepared a Planning Proposal to amend the Kempsey Local Environmental Plan (KLEP) 2013 (Amendment No. 27).

The Planning Proposal is a ‘Housekeeping’ amendment to:

  • Remove an identified portion of the mapped urban release area within Urban Release Area Map Sheet URA_013B to enable the assessment of future development applications for dwellings/buildings within Stage 1 of the Malbec Part 3A approval (Saltwater Links Estate), otherwise prohibited by clause 6.3 of KLEP 2013;
  • Amend zone and minimum lot size mapping in response to a Notice of Reservation issued under the National Parks & Wildlife Act 1974 and received from the Office of Environment & Heritage; and
  • Amend building height, land zone and minimum lot size mapping for a small portion of R5-Large Lot Residential zone to standardise these values with the adjacent R1-General Residential zone in a single land parcel (currently the subject of a residential subdivision identified as the Seascape Grove Residential Estate, located at South West Rocks).

These housekeeping amendments apply variously to the following land:

  • The Malbec Part 3A approval (Saltwater Links Estate): Portions of Lots 1 and 2 DP1229162, Belle O’Connor Street, South West Rocks (approximately 1.7ha);
