Standard Instrument Local Environmental Plan (LEP) - Floor Space Ratio (FSR) 12/08/2016 for NSW

This data identifies the maximum floor space ratio (FSR) for a building on certain land. The floor space ratio of buildings on a site is the ratio of the gross floor area of all buildings within the site to the site area. Clause 4.4 deals with the calculation of floor space ratio and site area. The maximum floor space ratio for a building may be subject to certain exceptions under other provisions of the Local Environment Plan (LEP). The FSR dataset defines the maximum allowed floor space ratio for individual properties, or how much floor area can be built on that property. FSR is the ratio of a building's floor area to the size of land that the building sits on, and is calculated by dividing the total floor area of a building by the total land area of the property (known as the site area). The original GIS data was captured by local councils, DP&I and contractors and provided in accordance with the DP&I's Standard Requirements for GIS LEP data and Standard Technical Requirements for LEP maps. Before the LEP is notified on the NSW Legislation website, the mapping is checked by DP&I and the Parliamentary Council's Office to ensure that it is consistent with these standards. After the LEP is notified, the GIS data is quality controlled using an ISO 9001-Quality-Certified, Quality Management System and incorporated into the Statewide dataset. The Floor Space Ratio data relates directly to and adopts the accuracy of its reference dataset, Land and Property Information DCDB. The GIS data may be subject to change as a part of quality control, or if the LEP is amended. Please confirm dates of respective features before use as this dataset has a large temporal extent.
