Local Environmental Plans

Our Local Environment Plan (LEP) guides planning decisions through land use zoning such as rural, environmental, residential, business, industrial and recreation as well as development controls. It essentially manages the ways in which land is used and is the primary planning tool for shaping the future of our community.

We currently have three LEPs that apply to our city: Shellharbour LEP 2000, Shellharbour Rural LEP 2004 and Shellharbour LEP 2013.
Zoning information for the site known as the Illawarra Regional Business Park is not currently mapped in Shellharbour. This information is available in 'related files'.
