The Upper Lachlan Local Environmental Plan 2010 divides the local government area into smaller areas known as land use zones. Each land use zone will have its own particular planning controls and often reflect either the main existing character of the land or its desired future use.
The objectives, uses permitted with and without consent, and prohibited development in each land use zone are detailed within the land use table section of the Upper Lachlan Local Environmental Plan 2010.
There are a number of ways you can find out the land use zoning information of a property (Note: zones for rating purposes may be different).
- You can search for a property in the NSW Planning Portal, which details zoning, minimum lot size and also provides details of land constraints that can potentially affect your property, for instance is the land classified as bushfire prone land, potential aboriginal artefacts, biodiversity, flood prone land, crown land, etc.; or

If you have recently purchased the property, the current land use zoning information will be detailed on your Section 10.7 Certificate as part of your settlement papers (see Planning Certificates below)
