What is a Local Development Plan (LDP)?
Who approves LDPs?
Unlike structure plans, scheme amendments and subdivisions, which are all approved at a State Government level, LDPs are assessed and approved by local governments.
Once an LDP is approved, applications
for planning approval on the site can be submitted which would provide more
detail on the specific design of new buildings. A future planning application
would need to reflect the approved LDP.
What are the next steps?
Once community consultation on the proposed LDP has concluded, the City will review all submissions received and complete its assessment of the plan. After this, the City's Strategic Planning staff will prepare a report which will be submitted to a future Council meeting for a decision on whether or not the LDP should be approved, refused or if it requires further modification.
