Planning Proposals typically seek to amend Local Environmental Plans (LEP’s) to allow different uses (rezoning) or to increase development potential (increasing height and floor space limits). Amending an LEP is one of the most difficult planning outcomes to achieve because it involves both State and Local Government and you have no right of appeal to the Land and Environment Court.
