Development Control Plan

Development Control Plans (DCPs) provide guidance for the design and operation of development within a Local Government Area (LGA) to achieve the aims and objectives of the Local Environmental Plan (LEP).
The development controls include setbacks, urban design, stormwater drainage, landscaping, parking and access. They cover various development types, including residential, commercial and industrial developments.

Under Section 79C of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, 1979, the Consent Authority is required to take into consideration the relevant provisions of the DCP in determining an application for development in the relevant Local Government Area.

New development should meet the requirements of the DCP and the relevant Parts within the Plan should be consulted to ensure the best outcome for applicants and the community.

Until such time a combined DCP is announced for the Cumberland Local Government Area, the DCPs that apply to Cumberland Local Government Area are:

  • Auburn Development Control Plan 2010
  • Holroyd Development Control Plan 2013
  • Parramatta Development Control Plan 2011

Each Part of the DCP is available to download using the link(s) below.
