53   Minister may make environmental planning instruments for local areas (LEPs)
(1)  The Minister may make environmental planning instruments for the purpose of environmental planning:
(a)  in each local government area, and
(b)  in such other areas of the State (including the coastal waters of the State) as the Minister determines.
(2)  Any such instrument may be called a local environmental plan (or LEP).
(3)  Despite subsection (1), the Minister may not make a local environmental plan in respect of any local government area in the Greater Sydney Region.
