Environmental Plan (SLEP) 2013 applies to all land in the Singleton Local
Government Area (LGA) including public and private owned or leased properties.
The LEP guides planning decisions across the LGA through the allocation of
zones to different parcels of land (for example, rural, residential,
environmental conservation, and public recreation, industrial and business
zones). The primary function of an LEP is to manage land use and development by
separating incompatible land uses through land use zones.
Each zone has a specific set
of objectives that identify the purpose of the land (for example, agricultural,
environmental conservation, and industrial residential). The zone also
describes the type of development that is permitted with consent, permitted
without consent or prohibited.
All land throughout the
Singleton LGA is subject to controls defined in the Singleton LEP 2013.
Singleton LEP determines the form and location of new development and provides
for the protection of open space, heritage items and heritage conservation
areas, rural and environmentally sensitive land.

• Singleton LocalEnvironmental Plan 2013;
