Minimum landscaped area

  • New guidance specifies a minimum portion of the site to be landscaped. This guideline is included in Division C, D, E, F, G and H.
  • ‘Landscaped area’ means a part of a site used for growing plants, grasses and trees, but does not include any building, structure or hard paved area (as defined by the NSW Standard Instrument Principal LEP).
  • These guidelines aim to prevent ‘overdevelopment’ and ensure sufficient area is available for planting of trees and landscaping and to protect a minimum area for absorption of rainwater into the ground.
  • The minimum areas specified are generally adapted from, and similar to, the Codes SEPP (Exempt & Complying Development Codes 2008).
