What happens following the exhibition of the DLEP 2013?
Following the completion of the public exhibition period, all submissions will be acknowledged and considered in a report which will go to a Council Meeting, including any proposed changes.
Council may decide to make amendments to DLEP 2013 and if the amendments do not require further exhibition the amended plan will be finalised and forwarded to the Department of Planning and Infrastructure (DoPI) for Ministerial approval.
The DoPI have advised that they may make changes to the DLEP 2013 to satisfy legal requirements and model clauses.
Finally, with the Minister's approval the plan becomes law and is published on the NSW legislation website.
Full information can be found on the Blue Mountains City Council website.
