When preparing a development proposal, you need to make sure it references the development standards in the relevant environmental plan. The plan for Eurobodalla Shire is the Eurobodalla Local Environmental Plan 2012. This plan provides the zoning for each site and outlines key development standards. These include building heights and minimum lot sizes.

To vary any of these development standards, your DA will need to address them under clause 4.6 of the Eurobodalla Local Environmental Plan 2012. This clause gives you the chance to show that the variation to the development standard(s) is justifiable.

To view the register of DAs where consent has been given with a variation to development standard SEPP1 or clause 4.6:
