Hay Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2011

Planning at Hay is subject to the overview of the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act. Council’s planning controls are the Hay Local Environmental Plan 2011 and relevant policies.

The Local Planning Controls have to fit within the framework of various state government policies (SEPP’s). There are links that explain these SEPP’s in detail along with the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act and Regulation.
