The Society has developed an online kit to help residents take appropriate action on environment-related matters and learn more about the legal frameworks and institutions regulating development in the Blue Mountains.
Our focus is on preserving the natural environment and opposing activity which will degrade or destroy the Blue Mountains environment.
The kit provides a guide to what you can do in the kinds of common situations that members of the public regularly approach the Society about.
So come along and learn more about the Kit and this important area of the Society's work.
Hands off our LEPs ! - an update
The Blue Mountains City Council has confirmed that our current Local Environment Plans (LEPs 1991 & 2005) will no longer exist and the NSW Government is requiring council to prepare a new single LEP for the Blue Mountains in the format of the 'one size fits all' NSW Government mandated standard LEP.
Find out about the major reforms the NSW government is proposing for our planning system and how it will impact on all of us - and what you can do in this critical year for environmental protection and planning law reform in the Blue Mountains and NSW.
