Town planning in NSW is guided by the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979. Under this Act, both State and Local Government have roles and responsibilities to ensure that our built and natural environments are developed in appropriate and sustainable ways.
The Broken Hill Local Environmental Plan 1996 (as amended) controls land use and development within the Local Government Area. An LEP allows Council and the community to guide development according to local values and characteristics in conjunction with State Policies and Regional Plans. However, the LEP does not normally provide detailed guidance with regard to specific development design and location. Development Control Plans (DCPs) provide this detail. Broken Hill City Council has a number of DCPs in place addressing topics such as heritage, outdoor advertising, residential development, commercial development, industrial development etc. These, and other documents, are available below.
