Eurobodalla Shire Council says it is awaiting clarification from the NSW Government after finding "anomalies" in the Rural Lands Strategy LEP, approved by the state on October 11.
The NSW Government released a statement on Tuesday, October 22 and said it was working with the council to resolve the issues.
Eurobodalla Mayor Liz Innes released a statement saying council staff had "discovered a number of differences to its adopted position and to what senior Department of Planning Infrastructure and Environment staff and the Minister's office advised would occur".
"We are currently awaiting further work by the Department to clarify the full extent of changes and their potential impact," Cr Innes said.
"Certainly we were not advised of any changes to the planning proposal prior to the Minister for Planning's sign-off."
Cr Innes said the council sought clarification and, "where appropriate, resolution about the discrepancies with both the Minister's office and the Department late last week".
"I have personally spoken to the Departmental head Jim Betts who has given his assurance they are working to rectify the matter as soon as possible," she said.
"Council is not in a position to comment further until the Department has been able to verify the exact implications and what can be done to rectify these changes."
Meanwhile, the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment said it was working with the council.
"Eurobodalla Shire Council raised concerns about changes that were made to the LEP, without the involvement of Council, in response to a submission from the Rural Fire Service," the department said.
"While the exact implications are still being identified, the changes will not affect the vast majority of landowners within the Eurobodalla Shire Council local government area," a spokesperson said.
Department Secretary Jim Betts regretted the "uncertainty".
"We are working to identify and clarify the changes as soon as possible," he said.
"We regret the uncertainty around some of details and any inconvenience this may have caused.
"Senior representatives from the Department met with council's senior planning staff yesterday. We continue to work to swiftly resolve this issue and discuss any additional concerns that Council have with the finalised LEP.
"I thank the Council and the community for their patience."
