Planning and Development
Eurobodalla Shire Council aims to protect and enhance the
natural and built heritage of Eurobodalla by managing development
using Local and State Government legislation, and Council's own
policies. Land use planning and development in Eurobodalla Shire is
administered by Eurobodalla Shire Council and the NSW
Planning and development services provided by Council are in two
- The Strategic Services Section develops land use plans,
policies and strategies which together with State requirements, set
out the requirements against which development applications are
- The Development Services Section, offers a wide range of
advisory services and provides development consents, construction
certificates, reviews complying development and conducts compliance
How does it work?
Land use within the Shire is primarily guided by the Eurobodalla
LEP 2012. Some land deferred from the 2012 LEP is guided by
the Eurobodalla Rural Local Environmental Plan 1987 and
Eurobodalla Urban 1999.
Development Control Plans (DCPs) further the objectives
of the LEPs by providing detailed land use requirements and
Eurobodalla's Local Environmental Plan 2012 and Rural Local
Environmental Plan 1987 are the main documents guiding
development in the shire.
