Marrickville Local Environmental Plan 2011

Marrickville Local Environmental Plan (MLEP) 2011 is a legal document that sets the direction for future growth in the local government area (LGA) by providing controls and guidelines for development. It determines what can be built, where it can be built and what activities can occur on land.  The written instrument and maps should be viewed together to understand zoning and building control changes proposed across the LGA or for a particular property.

Detailed planning controls supporting MLEP 2011 are within Marrickville Development Control Plan (MDCP) 2011.

MLEP 2011 came into force on 12 December 2011, repealing the former MLEP 2001.

The first round of amendments to MLEP 2011, known as Amendment No. 1, came into force on 25 October 2013. It was a 'housekeeping' amendment which included a number of items.

Amendment No. 3, which relates to revised planning controls for the land known as 74 Edinburgh Road, Marrickville came into force on 18 July 2014.
