Notice is hereby given that the Housekeeping Planning Proposal will be on public exhibition between 1 December 2021 and 21 January 2022.

This planning proposal has been prepared in accordance with Section 3.33 of the Environmental Planning and
Assessment Act 1979. It explains the intended effect of, and justification for, the proposed amendment to the Parkes
Local Environmental Plan 2012 (PLEP2012) to rectify:

  • Minor zoning and mapping anomalies,
  • Inclusion of Obstacle Limitation Surface Map,
  • Amend minimum lot size for community title subdivision,
  • Prohibit service stations in R1 General Residential zone,
  • Prohibit highway service centre in various zones, and
  • Remove Parkes National Logistics Hub clause and buffer map.

The amendments included in this planning proposal have been identified through the identification of minor anomalies through the application of the PLEP2012, matters identified in the Parkes Local Strategic Planning Statement and review of classification of Council owned land.
