SP2 Infrastructure Zone

The SP2 Infrastructure Zone is a ‘special purpose’ zone used to provide infrastructure and related uses, and to protect infrastructure from development that is not compatible with or that may detract from the provision of infrastructure. This includes Highways and State Roads, Railways, Utilities such as water treatment and waste and resource management.

Where is the SP2 Zone in Hilltops?

The SP2 zone is located where there is cemeteries, national and state classified roads, railways, waste disposal facilities, sewage treatment plants, defence lands in accordance with the  NSW Environmental Planning Policy (Infrastructure) 2007 and NSW Planning Circular PS 08-001.

Zone Objectives

The objective of the SP2 Zone is dedicated to protecting important infrastructure sites and easements from development. The Standard Instrument LEP objectives below are proposed to be included unaltered in the Draft Hilltops LEP:

  • To provide for infrastructure and related uses.
  • To prevent development that is not compatible with or that may detract from the provision of infrastructure.
    Development in SP2 Zone

SP2 Infrastructure requires the following land uses to be permitted with or without consent:

  • Aquaculture; and
  • Roads.

The Standard Instrument LEP requires that the following information be included in this zone’s land use table under section “3 Permitted with consent”:

  • “The purpose shown on the Land Zoning Map, including any development that is ordinarily incidental or ancillary to development for that purpose”.

Proposed Changes in Draft Hilltops LEP

Hilltops Council Depots will be zoned SP2 Infrastructure to indicate their dedicated infrastructure use.

Major waste transfer stations in Hilltops are to be zoned SP2 Infrastructure to better indicate their infrastructure use.

Major cemeteries in Hilltops are proposed to be zoned SP2 Infrastructure to better indicate their infrastructure use consistent across the Hilltops LGA.

State highways and railway corridors (regardless if they are active or note) should be zoned SP2 Infrastructure. Currently, this mapping is incomplete and inconsistent across Hilltops.
