We would like your feedback on a planning proposal to transition the West Byron Urban Release Area into the Byron Local Environmental Plan 2014.

The objectives of this planning proposal are:

  1. To rezone the land located within the West Byron Bay Urban Release Area (WBURA) currently zoned under the Byron Local Environmental Plan 1988 (BLEP 1988) into the Byron Local Environmental Plan 2014 (BLEP 2014) Zones
  2. To transition the relevant provisions of Part 4 West Byron Bay Site of the LEP 1988 into the Byron Local Environmental Plan 2014 (LEP 2014).

The planning proposal involves both mapping and policy changes to the 1988 and 2014 LEP.
