State Environmental Planning Policies
The NSW Government has established State Environmental Planning Policies (SEPPs) to address significant issues of the state and the people of NSW. SEPPs can apply to a specific area or in specific circumstances. In some cases they override the Liverpool LEP 2008 and Liverpool DCP 2008, while in other cases they are applied in conjunction with them.
A number of SEPPs may apply to land in Liverpool. There are three main SEPPs which apply to certain areas and override the Liverpool Local Environmental Plan 2008. These SEPPs provide the zoning and development controls for these areas.
- State Environmental Planning Policy (State Significant Precincts) 2005 applies to certain land in Edmondson Park South. This SEPP works in conjunction with Edmondson Park South Development Control Plan 2012.
- State Environmental Planning Policy (Sydney Region Growth Centres) 2006 applies to land in Austral and Leppington North.This plan works in conjunction with Liverpool Growth Centre Precincts Development Control Plan.
- State Environmental Planning Policy (Western Sydney Parklands) 2009 applies to land in the Western Sydney Parklands.
- State Environmental Planning Policy (Western Sydney Aerotropolis) 2020 applies to certain land in Badgerys Creek, Bringelly, Greendale, Luddenham, Kemps Creek and Rossmore (within the Liverpool LGA). Clauses within Part 3 Airport Safeguards extend beyond the Aerotropolis boundary and apply widely across the Liverpool LGA.
Other SEPPs which may apply
There are a number of other SEPPs which may apply. These can be found on the NSW Government’s Legislation website.
The applicable planning instruments can vary subject to the proposed development. To determine which policies apply to your land please see Council’s ePlanning portal or obtain a Section 10.7 Certificate.
