The DLEP was on public exhibition from 4 December 2013 to 5 March 2014 and has now concluded.

  • How to find your property in the maps that are enclosures to the 11 November 2014 Council Report

    over 4 years ago

    Background Maps have been broken into six tiles (or sheets) at 1:80,000 (tile No. 001 to 006) which are divided further into 1:40,000 and 1:20,000 scale tiles (e.g. 005B, 005C etc) and then further again into 1: 10,000 scale tiles.

    There are 41 maps to cover the Blue Mountains Local Government Area with up to 18 different ‘themes’, such as Land Zoning and Heritage.

    Background Maps have been broken into six tiles (or sheets) at 1:80,000 (tile No. 001 to 006) which are divided further into 1:40,000 and 1:20,000 scale tiles (e.g. 005B, 005C etc) and then further again into 1: 10,000 scale tiles.

    There are 41 maps to cover the Blue Mountains Local Government Area with up to 18 different ‘themes’, such as Land Zoning and Heritage.

    Why can't I use the interactive mapping tool? For Public Exhibtion there were three way to looks at the maps, including the Interactive Mapping tool, as explained in detail in Fact Sheet 9. For the 11 November 2014 Council Report the maps are only available as PDFs by theme. This is because these are post exhibtion maps and do not have the standing of the public exhibition version, which have statutory weight for various matters, like s149 certificates.  

    How to look at my property? In order to look at the map enclosures to see changes that may apply to your property the following steps are to be followed for two options:

    Option 1 Work out the map tile for your property

    1. Determine which first level tile number covers your property (i.e. 001 to 006) using Enclosure 6.1.

    2. Determine if a second level tile number covers your property (e.g. 005B, 005C 005D, 005E etc)

    3. Determine if a third level tile number covers your property (e.g. 005BA) (As an example, the shops at Lawson are located within the 1: 80,000 tile of 005 and then within a second level tile of 1:20,000 of 005B and then further again into third level tile of 1:10,000 of 005BA.)

    4. Once you have determined the tile numbers that cover your property (e.g. Lawson shops area is covered in tiles 005BA) these numbers will be the same for the property on all map sheets.

    5. Using these tile numbers, select the map sheets you are interested in. Map Sheets cover a range of issues including: land zoning, heritage and floor space ratio

    Option 2: Word Search in a particular map theme

    You can also open a theme you are interested in directly, say zoning (Enclosure 6.3 to the Council meeting) and search for the name of the village your property is located in and visually scan to see if you can find it that way.

    As an example, if you open the Land Zoning maps and search for the village of Yellow Rock, the first selection is of the broader map and does not provide you the zonings. Hit the next button again (so the second time Yellow Rock can be found in these maps) and you can see all the zonings for the village and surrounding area. You should be able to find your own property that way.

    The word search can also be used on street names, although it is recommended you need to be zoomed into to around 200% before doing such a search in order to see what is picked up by the search.  There can also be problems if the road name is more than one word (a search for Hat Hill does not give a result but a search for Hat does) and even if a street name is one word, if it is popular it can take a while to find your area (for instance Station is a popular street name and has multiple appearances in various maps). Also, on some maps smaller streets may not be titled and so a search would not be successful.

    My property is so small on those maps. The PDF maps can be zoomed into with no loss of resolution and is the required way that maps are both provided to the Department of Planning and eventually uploaded to their website when the plan is made.

    Please know that when DLEP 2013 is made the interactive mapping tool will be updated with the maps at that time.
