The Planning Proposal for Draft LEP 2013 contains maps that help illustrate the land use zones and planning controls that will be part of the new LEP.


The Draft LEP 2013 is supported by the following mandated (by Standard LEP) and local maps:


Map Title


Relevant Clause

Land Application Map

This map shows the land included in the planning proposal and basically covers all land within the Lithgow local government area(LGA).

7.4 & 7.5

Environmentally Sensitive Areas – Land Overlay Map

This map identifies sensitive lands generally unsuitable for development due to steep slopes and/or shallow soils, salinity, native vegetation, regular or permanent inundation, high proportion of rock outcrops, and location of significant karst environments.


Environmentally Sensitive Areas – Biodiversity Overlay

This map identifies sensitive areas to be maintained to protect terrestrial biodiversity, including, protecting native flora and fauna,                 protecting the ecological processes necessary for their continued existence, and encouraging the conservation and recovery of native flora and fauna and their habitats


Flood Planning Map

This map indentifies land at or below the flood planning level being the 1in 100 year Average Recurrent Interval plus a freeboard of 0.5m.

The flood planning area shown on the Flood Planning Map is the 1 in 100 year flood level taken from the 1991 Kinhill Floodplain Management Study.


Lithgow Drinking Water Catchment Map

This map identifies the proclaimed boundaries of the Lithgow drinking water catchment.


Land Reservation Acquisition Map

This map identifies the land to be acquired by the Roads and Maritime Services for road purposes.
