Sutherland Shire Local Environment Plan 2015

IN1 General Industrial

IN1 is a zone intended to provide a wide range of general industrial and warehouse land uses.  To prevent competition for industrial land, business and retail uses are not permitted in this zone. This includes bulky goods premises. This approach is consistent with directions issued by the NSW State Government.

IN1 zone uses

Industrial zones are now open zones, where primarily the prohibited uses are specified and all other uses are permissible. The benefits of this method is that new uses that are not encompassed into dictionary definitions are permissible, provided they are consistent with the objectives of the zone.

Permitted uses in the IN1 zone include industries, takeaway food and drink premises, neighbourhood shops and warehouse or distribution centres.

Prohibitied uses in the IN1 zone include retail premises (including bulky goods premises), residential accomodation and heavy industries.

For the full list of permissible and prohibited uses please view the SSLEP2015.
