Development control plan review
Council is reviewing some of the development control plans (DCPs) that apply to land in Eurobodalla Shire.
DCPs are documents that provide planning and building design guidelines for new development or alterations to existing development. They are used by applicants preparing a Development Application and the Council staff who assess them. DCPs describe criteria (controls) that development should meet such as building styles, materials used and appropriate locations for development.
The review will focus on the following DCPs:
- Neighbourhood Centres DCP (1.3MB) that applies to land zoned B1, B2 and R3 in neighbourhood centres
- Residential Zones DCP (1.3MB) that applies to most land zoned R2, R3, R5 and some E4 zoned land.
The Eurobodalla Local Environmental Plan (LEP) guides and regulates development, for example through land use zoning and minimum lot sizes.
The DCP review could result in proposed changes to DCPs, Council Codes or the LEP. If changes are proposed to DCPs or the LEP, they will be publicly exhibited and the community will have the opportunity to comment on them. The community can influence planning controls, however Council decides what is adopted.
