Liverpool Local Environmental Plan

Liverpool Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2008 applies to all land in Liverpool except for areas where other planning instruments have overridden the plan. Some new growth centre areas no longer use the Liverpool Local Environmental Plan 2008 and have now been overridden by State Environmental Planning Policies.

The LEP 2008 is a legal document containing development standards applying to land in Liverpool. It guides planning decisions and for each piece of land and specifies what may be built, what land may be used for, and what building heights and floor spaces are allowed.


The LEP map shows where certain controls apply.

You can confirm the location of the your property on the NSW Legislation website.

Council’s planning documents and controls, relevant maps and property information can also be found on the ePlanning portal

Council is currently in the process of reviewing its Local Environmental Plan (including the development of Liverpool’s draft Local Strategic Planning Statement) to align with priorities outlined in the Greater Sydney Commission's Western City District Plan within a two year timeframe (to mid-2020) following funding received under the Western Sydney City Deal.
