Draft Mogo Village Commercial Centre Development Control Plan
Thank you for your feedback
Thank you for your comments on the draft Development Control Plan (DCP) for Mogo Village Commercial Centre.
The draft DCP was on public exhibition from Wednesday 15 August until Monday 17 September 2018. An information stall was held at Mogo’s John Street Reserve on Saturday 15 September between 10am and 1pm.
Ten submissions were received.
What happens next?
Council will consider all submissions to the draft Mogo Village Development Control Plan and make a decision about whether to adopt the draft Mogo DCP at a Council meeting. If the draft Mogo DCP is adopted it may be with changes based on the submissions received.
Public notice of the decision made by Council and the reasons supporting the decision will then be made in the local newspaper.
If adopted, this will replace the Neighbourhood Centres DCP that currently applies to the Mogo village commercial centre.
What’s a Development Control Plan (DCP)?
DCPs provide detailed planning and building design guidelines for new development, or alterations to existing development. If adopted, the draft Mogo Village Commercial Centre DCP would reintroduce relevant provisions of the former Mogo Village Commercial Centre Development Control Plan No. 170 related to historic character.
What land would the draft Mogo DCP apply to?
The draft Mogo DCP would apply to land in Mogo as shown edged heavy black and hatched as shown below and in Map No. 1 in Schedule 1 – Maps in the draft DCP. This land aligns with the area in Mogo that is zoned B2 Local Centre by the Eurobodalla Local Environmental Plan 2012.
How was the Mogo DCP developed?
Council asked the community about its vision for Mogo in February 2017. Ten written submissions were received and over 25 people attended a community information session held in Mogo. This was undertaken as part of the Mogo Planning Controls Review.
Feedback from the Mogo community included that planning controls should acknowledge and support the historic feel of the buildings in the business area of the village. It was strongly suggested the provisions from the former Mogo Village Commercial Centre DCP No.170 be reinstated. The former Mogo Village DCP No. 170 was repealed on 18 October 2011 when Council adopted the Neighbourhood Centres DCP. The draft Mogo Village Commercial Centre Development Control Plan is generally consistent with the format of other Council DCPs while incorporating relevant provisions of the former Mogo DCP No. 170.
Subsequent feedback from the Mogo Village Business Chamber has also been considered in the development of the draft Mogo Village Commercial Centre DCP.
Why was the former Mogo DCP No. 170 repealed?
The former Mogo Village DCP was repealed on 18 October 2011 when Council adopted the Neighbourhood Centres DCP. The Neighbourhood Centres DCP was developed as part of the 2009-2011 DCP review program that consolidated various place-based and issue-based DCPs into simpler and fewer zone-based DCPs. The Neighbourhood Centres DCP is less detailed than the former Mogo DCP, however it does contain provisions that require new development to be consistent with the existing or desired character of the place.
