WFCC Submission to Council on DLEP 2013

The following submission was made on behalf of the Wentworth Falls Chamber of Commerce and specifically relates to the village and residential areas that are serviced by the village of Wentworth Falls.

In summary, the planning instruments, in particular proposed lot sizes and zonings, do not meet the objectives of the Draft LEP because they fail to provide adequate residential housing opportunities within safe walking or cycling distance from the commercial heart in the village. The Chamber recommends that the exemptions to the Standard Instrument that the Council has applied for be denied as this Draft LEP is far too restrictive in the promotion of business and tourist developments and is found not to comply with sustainability principles.
