We've developed a new policy that outlines how Council reviews planning proposals to amend the Cessnock Local Environment Plan (LEP).

The draft policy covers requirements, processing, notification and determination. It will ensure planning proposals are processed in a consistent, transparent and timely manner, and that they align with local and regional planning strategies.

The policy forms part of our commitment to making Council more responsive to the community, a key objective of the Cessnock 2027 Community Strategic Plan.
